This is a very exciting and critical time in our nation's history and the timing is now, to enact entrepreneurship education in our schools from Grade 1-12 so future generations will thrive in the global economy.

On March 8, Craig Zamary presented to the President of the Board and to 19 Board Members at the Department of Education on Why Entrepreneurship Should be Taught in 1st Grade.

Craig built the case for his “Declaration of Entrepreneurship”, which is to enact Entrepreneurship Education in Grades 1-12, in classrooms in all 50 states across the United States in support of youth entrepreneurship education.

“Entrepreneurship Education will empower our students to not just compete, however thrive in the Global Economy. I am not suggesting that all first graders go out and start a business, however, I am showing why being exposed to entrepreneurship education and how the entrepreneur mindset will empower students to unlock their potential.” - Craig Zamary

The presentation began with his story that has already received national and international attention and recognition. Craig went on to show the powerful and supporting evidence from Harvard Business Review, EY, Gallup, U.S. Department of Education, U.S. Department of Labor, and the World Economic Forum, showing the global need for students to learn entrepreneurship at a very early age and how it will empower future generations regardless of the career path they choose in life. He also presented slides of young entrepreneurs across the US who have successfully launched their own businesses.

Craig Zamary closed the loop on his presentation by reflecting on Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense” from 1776. Craig explained “In 1776, American Independence at that time was viewed as a very radical idea, and no one wanted to publish “Common Sense” for Thomas Paine. I stand here today, 240 years later and I am Declaring Why Entrepreneurship Should be Taught in 1st Grade to 12th grade. This is not a radical idea, in fact, its “Common Sense".

The next step, Craig Zamary is working to move the youth entrepreneurship initiative and program forward with the Department of Education and hopes to oversee the building of a team to create, design and implement Entrepreneurship Education in Grades 1-12 in the United States.
