ENTREPRENEURSHIP EDUCATION AND SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL EDUCATION IN ENUGU EDUCATION ZONE

ABSTRACT

 The study was carried out to investigate entrepreneurship education for senior secondary schools in Enugu Education Zone. A descriptive survey research design was adopted for the study. The population comprised 1620 male and female teachers while the sample size was 500 respondents selected using simple random sampling technique. Questionnaire and focus group interview were used as the instruments for data collection and were faced-validated by three experts. Cronbach Alpha Method was employed in computing the reliability estimate of the study that yielded 0.70 for the entire instrument. Direct delivery method was used in administering the questionnaire while the researcher conducted the focus group discussion. Five research questions and three null hypotheses guided the study. Percentage, mean and standard were used in answering the research questions while t-test was employed in testing the null hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The findings indicated that qualified entrepreneurship education teachers are inadequate in secondary education for teaching the subject. The study identified the basic entrepreneurship skills needed by secondary school students to include Okpa flour for baking cake, using Okpa flour for making akara balls, packaging Okpa flour for export, using maize flour for making bread, skills in snail farming others include banana farming, making of banana biscuits, packaging honey for export, preservation of yellow pepper and packaging of yellow pepper for export. The findings indicated that entrepreneurship education provides secondary school students with leadership competences, training for professional growth, communicative skills, organizational strategies and self employment amongst others. The findings revealed lack of qualified entrepreneurship education teachers, inadequate facilities, poor funding, and lack of electricity and poor knowledge of computer as some of the problems of entrepreneurship education in secondary schools. The findings identified training of more teachers, providing more facilities and equipment, adequate funding, provision of electricity to communities, maintenance culture, and supply of computer to students and sensitization of the students on the importance of entrepreneurship education through seminars as strategies for improving entrepreneurship education for secondary school students. The results of the three null hypotheses of the study were rejected implying that there were no significant differences between the male ratings of female on the qualification of entrepreneurship education teachers, basic entrepreneurship skills needed by secondary school students and opportunities provided by entrepreneurship education to the secondary school students in the zone. The researcher among others recommended that the Government should address the shortage of entrepreneurship education teachers through training of more teachers in the area.
