Welcome to Business Education
Hello, my name is Jim Paisley. This year I am teaching Introduction to Technology and Careers, Robotics, Youth Service, and Personal Finance. I graduated from BVU with a BA in Accounting and Management Information Systems. I have since run my own small businesses providing accounting and bookkeeping services for individuals that moved weekly for their work; and most recently, I provided information technology support to local schools and other non-profits. Providing those services to the GHEC district is how I found an opportunity to start teaching and become the technology coordinator. I am excited to be a part of our district and enjoyed teaching here last year as well.
Business education involves teaching students the fundamentals, theories, and processes of business.
The National Standards for Business Education
This collection of national standards is a forward-looking synthesis of what students should know and be able to do in business.
The standards are based on a vision and a set of competencies designed to prepare students to become knowledgeable and ethical decision makers as they fulfill their roles as consumers, workers, and citizens.
The National Standards for Business Education are based on the conviction that business education competencies are essential for all students.
The curriculum as a whole focuses on continuous quality education. Students master the knowledge, applications, and attitudes that will reinforce workplace competencies. This concept is illustrated in the National Standards for Business Education Curriculum Model. Assessment is both a measure of competence and a teaching strategy; what is not mastered at one level becomes the focus of successive learning experiences.
As the nature of work continues to change, business education becomes increasingly important for all students. NBEA and its members believe that if young people are to take their rightful place in society as productive and responsible citizens, they should have the chance to study the principles of business as they relate to their personal and professional lives.
