AN ANALYSIS OF THE STUDENT POPULATION IN AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION AT NORTH CAROLINA STATE UNIVERSITY.
PASOUR, HENRY A.; AND OTHERS
IN THE FACE OF DECREASING NUMBERS OF STUDENTS PREPARING TO TEACH VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE IN THE LAND-GRANT INSTITUTIONS AND THE INCREASING DEMAND FOR VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE TEACHERS, A STUDY WAS UNDERTAKEN TO DETERMINE THE SOURCE OF PAST AND PRESENT AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION STUDENTS IN NORTH CAROLINA. DATA WERE GATHERED FROM STUDENT FILES ON 554 AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION STUDENTS WHO GRADUATED BETWEEN 1954 AND 1961 AND ALL UNDERGRADUATES IN THE PROGRAM FROM 1962 THROUGH SPRING 1966. IT WAS FOUND THAT 49.7 PERCENT OF THE STUDENTS CAME FROM 18 PERCENT OF THE COUNTIES, THOSE COUNTIES WHICH HAD MORE VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE PROGRAMS. DISTANCE FROM THE STATE UNIVERSITY DID NOT SEEM TO BE AN INFLUENCE, BUT ECONOMIC OR OCCUPATIONAL FACTORS MAY HAVE BEEN. THE NUMBER OF YEARS A TEACHER HAD BEEN AT A PARTICULAR SCHOOL DID NOT APPEAR TO BE RELATED TO THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS ENTERING AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION. TRANSFER STUDENTS FROM OTHER CURRICULUMS WITHIN NORTH CAROLINA STATE UNIVERSITY AND FROM OTHER COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES ACCOUNTED FOR 47 PERCENT OF THE AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION STUDENTS. (JM)
