More calls this morning to teach kids some real world skills in school.

A LearnCoach survey found 32% of high school students want more classroom focus on how to launch a small business.

It comes amidst a rise in high school students having their own "side hustles" like selling clothes and crafts on social media platforms.

Business coach and author Steve Hockley joined Mike Yardley to speak on how we can get more school kids involved in business.

“I think probably more engagement between the schools and the business community and more things like the Young Enterprise system.”
