Mean scores were used to answer the research questions while z – test was used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The study revealed that principals of secondary schools in Anambra seek the entrepreneurship teachers’ ideas about students’ performance in entrepreneurship subjects. However, while public secondary school principals do not nurture co-operative work environment among entrepreneurship teachers, private secondary school principals do not give awards to entrepreneurship teachers whose students perform well in external examinations.

Based on these findings, it was among others recommended that public secondary schools principals in Anambra State should nurture co-operative work environment among entrepreneurship teachers in their schools while principals in private secondary schools should not only reward their teachers adequately, they should also mobilize PTA to provide learning resources for the teaching of entrepreneurship studies in their schools. Furthermore, public and private secondary school principals should explore alternative sources of income generation for funding entrepreneurship in their schools instead of depending on government or parents for fund.
