Self-belief not dependence

I was pleased to see an article in today's Glasgow Herald by Tom Hunter who is one of our best entrepreneurs and founder of Sports Division. Writing about the latest phase of the Schools Enterprise Programme which helps children to learn about entrepreneurship, Hunter says:
Why is that helping us to become an enterprising nation? Because the only way to shift from a dependency culture to a "can do" culture is by educating our next generations that enterprise is for all.

I favour privatisation of schools but this programme is a very welcome change in the state sector.
