Education is a multi-billion dollar industry today, but being involved in the field of education, whether as an individual, non-profit, or for-profit entity, comes with certain social responsibilities. In this episode, Dr. Bernard Bull argues that there are at least five core areas of responsibility, all focused upon ultimately promoting an educational ecosystem that serves and educates learners as a top priority.
In this second episode, Dr. Bernard Bull shares the 11 must read books for educational entrepreneurs or social entrepreneurs in the education sector.
