Abduhzen said that the 52 hrs training will be insufficient, especially if it lacks proper comprehensiveness on paedagogy and teaching philosophy. In relation to the policy that makes Entrepreneurship to be an obligatory subject in High Schools, Mr. Gultom said that the economic subject teachers will be prepared to take the duty. There are still some pros and contras on this obligatory subject because entrepreneurship education requires capabilities in innovation and creativity, while most of the teachers do not have proper understanding on entrepreneurship, and the relevance of its teaching in high school is still being questioned.
