Part 5: Final Written Proposal (100 points): As we’ve been discussing all semester, careful editing is an integral part of the writing process. Now that you have feedback from your instructor, you’ll need to apply it by rewriting your proposal. The rewrite is worth 100 points. If you do not follow your instructor’s feedback, your rewrite grade could be lower than the grade you earned on your draft. If you do not submit a rewrite that includes changes, you will receive a grade of zero.
YanpengZhai 1 YanpengZhai Elissa Kahn Petrosky BA2196 2/12/19 Student-run Business Proposal According to Lisa Stevens, student-run businesses in schools play a pivotal role in helping learners complement whatever they learn in class by employing such values in a real world environment. A student run business would be highly beneficial to the learners presenting an opportunity to make an income, while practicing business management skills. Such an opportunity is often otherwise left to the larger labor market, whose conditions do not always tally with student interests. On the contrary, having such an institution supported by the school and ran by the students would guarantee the necessary flexibility for learners to strike a balance between their classroom demands as well as practice different activities that would facilitate a seamless transition from the academic to labor market once they complete the different courses. The proposal to have the business is only viable with the school administration’s support. As long as the school management agrees to the development of such a business, then the students would be willing and could enroll as necessary into the program, which would have the authority to run the business. Ultimately, the program would address students needs among them financial and education needs since they could make an income while working in the different businesses. Notably, other schools have such programs, primarily ran by students, and with the ultimate responsibility resting on an appointed member of staff to guarantee appropriate financial management. Therefore, the proposal herein will be beneficial to both the learners and the school, by presenting the learners with an opportunity to gain business experience, while YanpengZhai 2 enabling the school access learning resources from real situations in the business environment as presented in the school business model.

Summary
In this journal article, the authors analyze the experiences of students in a free health
clinic run by students. It addresses issues relating to experiential education where students get

article shows that students were confident that they were gaining valuable experience and
translating class ideas into the real world.
