A STUDY OF THE STATUS AND ROLE OF THE JUNIOR COLLEGES IN PROVIDING NON-TRANSFER AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION IN CALIFORNIA.
VORHIES, RALPH M.
INFORMATION FOR THIS STUDY WAS OBTAINED FROM A SURVEY OF CALIFORNIA JUNIOR COLLEGES OFFERING AGRICULTURAL TRAINING FOR THE TERMINAL STUDENT, AND FROM FORMER STUDENTS. EXAMINATION OF THE NUMBER AND TYPE OF COURSES OFFERED, STUDENT EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND, AND EMPLOYMENT RECORDS OF FORMER STUDENTS INDICATES THAT 1) AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION HAS BEEN PRIMARILY GEARED TO THE NEEDS OF THE TRANSFER STUDENT, 2) COURSES IN TECHNICAL AGRICULTURE HAVE PROVED TO BE MOST USEFUL TO FORMER STUDENTS, PARTICULARLY IF SUCH COURSES HAVE BEEN BASED ON THE NEEDS OF THE LOCAL AGRICULTURAL COMMUNITY, 3) PLACEMENT AND FOLLOWUP OF THESE STUDENTS HAVE BEEN NEGLECTED, AND 4) THERE IS LITTLE EVIDENCE OF DUPLICATION OF EFFORT BETWEEN THE JUNIOR COLLEGE AND STATE COLLEGE PROGRAMS OF TERMINAL AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION. (THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN THE JOURNAL OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF COLLEGES AND TEACHERS OF AGRICULTURE, 8/96-98, DECEMBER 1964.) (AL)
