PROBLEMS OF IMPLEMENTING AGRICULTURAL OCCUPATIONS PROGRAMS IN TWENTY-EIGHT SELECTED VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE DEPARTMENTS.
DUPY, CLEO A.; HULL, WILLIAM L.
MIGRATION FROM RURAL TO URBAN AREAS AND THE SHIFT IN LEGISLATIVE EMPHASIS FROM FARMING TO OFF-FARM AGRICULTURAL OCCUPATIONS PROMPTED THE OPERATION OF A SUMMER INSERVICE TEACHER EDUCATION INSTITUTE ON OFF-FARM AGRICULTURAL OCCUPATIONS FOR 30 VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE TEACHERS. THE IDENTIFICATION OF PROBLEM AREAS DURING THE INSTITUTE RESULTED IN THIS STUDY TO--(1) COMPARE SCHOOLS WHICH OFFERED SEPARATE OCCUPATIONS CLASSES WITH THOSE THAT INTEGRATED THE OCCUPATIONAL EXPERIENCE STUDENTS INTO TRADITIONAL CLASSES, AND (2) IDENTIFIED DIFFICULTIES IN SECURING STUDENT TRAINING STATIONS AND ADMINISTRATIVE APPROVAL. DATA WERE COLLECTED BY USING STRUCTURED INTERVIEW SCHEDULES WITH 28 OF THE 30 TEACHERS WHO ATTENDED THE INSTITUTE. TEACHERS RANKED PROBLEMS IN THE FOLLOWING ORDER--(1) SECURING TRAINING STATIONS, (2) SECURING STUDENTS, AND (3) SECURING ADMINISTRATIVE APPROVAL. TEACHER INITIATIVE WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR IN SECURING TRAINING STATIONS. OTHER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES INTERFERED MOST IN SECURING STUDENTS. THE GREATEST PROBLEM IN SECURING ADMINISTRATIVE APPROVAL WAS IN ARRANGING SCHOOL SCHEDULES SO THAT STUDENTS COULD PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM. MULTIPLE TEACHER DEPARTMENTS WITH LARGER ENROLLMENTS PLACED MORE STUDENTS IN TRAINING STATIONS. (JM)
