TEACHER’S PERCEPTION OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP EDUCATION CURRICULUM AND IT’S IMPLICATIONS ON IMPLEMENTATION AT SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS

INTRODUCTION

The study examined the perception of teachers on the senior secondary Entrepreneurship Education Curriculum. Three research questions were formulated to guide the study. The research design adopted for the study is a descriptive survey. The population of the study consisted of all the public senior secondary schools in Kano Metropolis and the teachers within them. A purposive sampling technique was employed to select 343 teachers from 12 schools. The instrument for data collection was a modified 4-Point Likert Scale questionnaire developed by the researchers and titled ”Teachers Perception of Entrepreneurship Curriculum Questionnaire (TPEECQ)”. The data obtained were analyzed using descriptive statistics (means and standard deviation). The results showed that teachers have a positive perception of entrepreneurship education as a technique for secondary school graduate self-employment. The findings also reveal that teachers perceive the entrepreneurship education curriculum as appropriate in terms of its goals and content. The study concludes with recommendations such as: the senior secondary entrepreneurship education curriculum should be redesigned to reflect more entrepreneurial skills and fully implemented at senior secondary schools in Kano Metropolis. Government and private investors should give adequate attention to entrepreneurial development in secondary schools by providing adequate funding as well as taking measures to overcome all the prevailing challenges facing effective entrepreneurship teaching.
