PHIPPS, LLOYD J.; AND OTHERS
PILOT PROGRAMS WERE CONDUCTED TO DEVELOP AND TEST INNOVATIONS IN AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION THAT WOULD (1) IMPROVE AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION FOR FARMERS AND PROSPECTIVE FARMERS, AND (2) PROVIDE AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS FOR OCCUPATIONS OTHER THAN FARMING IN WHICH KNOWLEDGE AND SKILL IN AGRICULTURAL SUBJECTS ARE NECESSARY FOR SUCCESSFUL EMPLOYMENT. PILOT CENTERS WERE ESTABLISHED IN HIGH SCHOOLS OF ST. ELMO, OLNEY, CISSNA PARK, AND WOODSTOCK, ILLINOIS. THE DESCRIPTION OF EACH PROGRAM GIVES INFORMATION ON (1) THE VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE PROGRAMS PRIOR TO 1964-65, WITH A CORE OF INSTRUCTIONAL COURSES OFFERED IN EACH SCHOOL AND ALSO SPECIALIZED COURSES FOR THE JUNIOR AND SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL LEVELS, (2) SUPERVISED AGRICULTURAL EXPERIENCE PROGRAMS, WITH OCCUPATIONAL OBJECTIVES AND STEPS IN ESTABLISHING PUPILS IN PROGRAMS, (3) ADULT EDUCATION, (4) THE COMMUNITY SURVEY, AND (5) THE AGRICULTURAL ADVISORY COUNCIL. RECOMMENDATIONS EMPHASIZED THE NEED FOR SCHOOL-COMMUNITY COOPERATION. (PS)
