The purpose of this paper is to examine the effect of head teachers' background characteristics on the entrepreneurship education of schools. The study analyzes how the background characteristics of head teachers explain the implementation of entrepreneurship education in schools. The methods applied were analysis of variance and linear regression analysis. The data consists of 135 Finnish general education head teachers. The results show that while the head teachers and schools bring out some interesting differences, only the school level and the head teacher's training in entrepreneurship education can help to anticipate entrepreneurship education activities in the school.
