The present study investigated the entrepreneurial inclination of secondary school teachers in Kuala Muda Yan. Specifically it aimed to investigate the relationships between entrepreneurial inclination and the personal characteristics, family-related factors, environment factors, and work experience of secondary school teacher of Kuala Muda Yan. In order to carry out this research, a descriptive quantitative study was carried out. The units of analysis are the secondary school teachers of Kuala Muda Yan. Three hundred and thirty-two teachers were included in the study through a combination of stratified random sampling and convenience sampling. Questionnaires were distributed to target respondents personally or through the school administrators. The response rate was 90.6%. The instrument used consisted of two parts; part A and part B. Part A was used for a demographic survey and Part B was used to measure the entrepreneurial inclination of the respondents. The latter part of the instrument was adopted from the Entrepreneurial Attitude Orientation Scale developed by Robinson (1991), the General Entrepreneurial Tendency developed by the Durham University Business School (1988) and Barcelona's (1992) survey. Data were analysed using the t-test and one way ANOVA to determine the differences in demographic characteristics and their effects on the entrepreneurial inclination of teachers. The 0.05 level of significance was wed as the critical level for decisions regarding the hypotheses. This study found that significant differences in entrepreneurial inclination among teachers could be seen under three factors tested. They are monthly income of the teacher, key posts held by the teacher and business experience outside school. The other factors tested do not appear to have significants effect on the entrepreneurial inclination of the teachers. Based on the findings, suggestions for further research and recommendations for decision makers in policy formation or entrepreneurship development programmes have been forwarded.
