Abstract

In our society, which aims at developing itself as a democratic society, and whose base is the market orientation of the economy and, as such, is striving for a place in the European community, education for entrepreneurship is becoming increasingly important. It assumes re-examination of the objective of education and embedding the most important postulates of entrepreneurship in it: entrepreneurial lifestyle, building entrepreneurial spirit, imagination, perseverance, consistency, positive attitude towards work, according to the results of legality and respect for the market. This does not mean reducing or reducing any component making the goal of education so far. Rather, it means only a supplement and improvement of pedagogically specific objective of education. Redefinition of education today is actual, not only in our country, and not only in neighboring countries but also in Europe as a whole. Reality of life shows that the primacy of entrepreneurial spirit, success in production and competitiveness in the market, from Europe, in which it was dominantly present, already has moved to the countries of the Far East countries and America, and that our country is in the race market orientation of foreign investing almost completely unprepared. In our social environment, this issue has a special and specific significance. Traces of the past including the most painful human suffering, persecution, exile, and destruction of material goods, are visible everywhere. An unfavorable economic position of young people is also obvious. About 40% of young people between 20-24 years of age and one-quarter of young people between 25 and 29 years old are unemployed. Young people who are employed work in unfavorable conditions … A large number of young people do not work in their field of expertise and have jobs that require lower qualifications than those they already possess. In Kosovo and Metohija, all these problems are multiplying, requiring the involvement of all social factors, as well as international, especially European Community, so as to be resolved. Educational solutions, among others, should be sought in education for entrepreneurship. The aim of education is to prepare all members of society for entrepreneurship, especially the younger generation, for economic and other social progress (for economic growth and development, the competitiveness of the national economy) and for a better position of each individual in it. The term 'entrepreneurship education' that is extremely actual in the United States and the European Union, is completely variously understood in our region. This paper strives to explain these concepts. Education for entrepreneurship can be realized in significantly different conception of the school and the course curriculum and class process in it, than that which existed in the traditional school system. Of course, educating for entrepreneurship, in the entrepreneurial school, can be realized by the entrepreneurial teacher who is the personification of what we want to achieve with students: education, good manners, punctuality, responsibility, diligence, success … Entrepreneurial school teacher isn’t a lecturer. He is the one who shows and indicates regularity, he is a manager, organizer, executer, equal (experienced) participants, setting the example in searching for new ideas and finding solutions to specific situations … Living in a democratic society with a market orientation of the economy requires specific knowledge, specific skills, and specific habits. It requires capability for concrete work. Therefore, program orientation on the principle ‘all should learn everything’ should be reconsidered. In order to prepare for life and improving of knowledge, specific skills, habits and abilities are desirable. General education is necessary as well as abilities that indicate specific activity, work, success in the production and market success.
