Abstract

This book considers the renewed focus on values and democracy in education and the widening of the enterprise agenda in theoretical and practical terms. What is the relationship between enterprise education and 'third way' politics and communitarianism? How can conceptualisations of enterprise education be made to engage pupils? The book combines theoretical discussion with compelling research evidence from a Scottish-based study. Case studies of teachers' practice and the pupils' perceptions illustrate the ways in which enterprise education can lend itself to the expression of citizenship and democracy in schools. The evidence indicates useful principles which can be applied to wider contexts in the UK and beyond.
