“What do the innovation economy and young black men have to offer each other?”
What is it that the disadvantaged students need to succeed? Mike Green discusses how disadvantaged young black men in particular need access to the language of innovation and STEM education. Knowledge and mastery of the language and skills of the innovation gives students access to high-growth and high-income entrepreneurial opportunities in the future. Green believes students need to be challenged with critical thinking projects and educated by people who are thinking in innovative ways. These innovative educational opportunities will positively impact students in both academics and life.
