Publication Date : 16/03/2021
Many of the less developed countries, such as Jordan, suffer from poverty and unemployment. One of the best ways to reduce poverty and unemployment is through entrepreneurial and innovative new start-ups. Since the existence of entrepreneurial characteristics is not limited to a particular human race, everyone could have entrepreneurial qualities. Therefore, we must address all future generations and encourage them to think and act entrepreneurial and even to try to discover the Jordanian Bill Gates, Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg. How can we address all future generation? The short answer is "Through Schools". The formation and accumulation of human capital requires a high-performance education system that can face new challenges and meet new requirements. The widespread teaching methods in Jordan are not effectively able to transfer entrepreneurial qualities and abilities to the pupils. In comparison to reading, listening, speaking or writing, people can remember 90% of what they do. Doing is considered the best way to learn, receive information (experience, characteristics, abilities) and to keep it in the long term. Therefore, the author emphasizes the action orientation to promote the entrepreneurial skills and abilities of students in schools. With this model, the "Independent School", the author tries to give schools their own partial responsibility (financial independency). In doing so, we broaden the scope of action of the directors, teachers and above all the students. This model does not only target educational and entrepreneurial goals, but it targets also social and economic goals in wide rang. The author distributed 500 small questionnaires asking pupils in public schools about this model and this idea. 75% of them show clear acceptance and interest in implementing this model and this idea. Through this model schools will be increasingly strengthened from inside and out of their own power and become more efficient.
