The business curriculum: moving the subject forward We should now be addressing the nature of the subject itself, by considering how the business education curriculum should develop and critiquing aspects of current practice. Here are a series of questions that are intended to kick start this process. * How might business education courses be developed to help enable young people to think more critically and deeply a bout the nature of business activity? * Given that many business studies courses feature not-forprofit organisations as well as public sector bodies might the subject be better termed "organisational studies" so that the full range of organisational activity is actively included? * To what extent is business studies (or organisational studies) best taught by those who are sceptical of, suspicious of or actively hostile to a range of existing business practices? * To what extent do schools and colleges try to steer high attaining 14-19 year olds away from business courses, and why?
