'Govt school students to soon interact with entrepreneurs'
NEW DELHI: The Delhi government has planned that for the Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum in state-run schools, the education department would bring entrepreneurs, who will directly interact with students. "The country needs citizens with entrepreneurial 'mindset' whether they do a job or they do business. The objective of bringing you on board is to remove the fear of trying something new from our students," said Deputy CM Manishish Sisodia to the entrepreneurs on Tuesday.
The Deputy CM, who also holds the portfolio of the Education Minister, told the entrepreneurs that they should share their experiences with the students so that the students understand the nuances of entrepreneurship. "I am inviting you to provoke the children studying in Delhi government schools to gather confidence to use the skills that we provide them with, in a way they never imagined before, for their good, for the country," said the Deputy CM. He also said that this curriculum is a new idea, and how it shapes up will depend on how the experts take the initiative forward. "All ideas are welcome, it's just that we don't want to bog the kids down with jargon, & rather spark curiosity, positivity and courage in them. They'll learn anything if they have those qualities," he said.
