Business Education at high school level- a good way to fight recession in market

May 18, 2009 4:11am CST
Hi friends, As we all know that all the markets are down due to recession. All the companies are decreasing no of working employees. Even the best colleges and universities are not able to give full placement. So in this case i have a good idea to fight against this recession and increasing unemployment. Nowadays in India and elsewhere whoever comes out from a college/university first searches for a job and very few people have courage to take risk and start their own business. This is because of lack of basic concepts of business. I suggest that in high school education i.e. at elementary stage everyone should be given education of business i.e. basic knowledge or concepts needed to run a business. I am not telling to go deep and understand each and every concept but just basic knowledge so that running a business wouldn't seem entirely new thing with no knowledge about them. This would result in more no of small scale industries, whose growth will decrease the unemployment and hence there would be more companies in each field and so the rates would also be control and big companies wouldn't just fly high with high rates. What do you all say?

I agree. I think that our high schools should give the students a better understanding of the normal workings of a business so that they will be more prepared to enter the world. "Intro to Business" should be a required class just like English. In our world, we cannot make it without at least some working knowledge of the business industry.

Thats the point dear, i was just trying to say that only. Without the knowledge of business how can any student(who doesen't belong to a business family) start a business of his own?
