Social Entrepreneurs and Education

By J. Gregory Dees

Commentary on issue of CICE devoted to the topic of social entrepreneurs and education:  “The work presented [in this issue of CICE] should advance our thinking about social entrepreneurship in general, not just in the world of education. The four papers that made it into this issue are encouraging and thought provoking. They suggest that there is a positive role for social entrepreneurship in education, but they also raise a number of important issues and tensions that need to be addressed, as this construct gets further refined, developed, and extended into new domains.”
