A STUDY OF THE VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAM AS CONDUCTED BY THE TEXAS EDUCATION AGENCY ADULT EDUCATION SPECIALISTS.
HOLT, ORIS M.
TEACHERS OF VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE IN LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICTS WHO HAD SPONSORED SHORT COURSES HELD BY TEXAS EDUCATION AGENCY ADULT EDUCATION SPECIALISTS WERE SURVEYED TO DETERMINE THE EFFECTS THESE COURSES HAD ON THE ADULT AND YOUNG FARMER PROGRAMS. CHARACTERISTICS OF PROGRAMS BEFORE AND AFTER THE SHORT COURSES, THE EXTENT TO WHICH SHORT COURSES INFLUENCED TEACHERS TO CONDUCT SUCH PROGRAMS, HOW THEY WERE USED, HOW THEY HELPED VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE TEACHERS AND YOUNG FARMERS, AND THE TYPE OF FARM INSTRUCTION DESIRED WERE STUDIED. DATA INDICATED THAT PROGRAMS CONDUCTED PRIOR TO SPONSORING SHORT COURSES MET MORE FREQUENTLY AS PROBLEMS AROSE THAN AT REGULAR INTERVALS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. SHORT COURSES INFLUENCED PROGRAM PLANNING AND RESULTED IN MORE INTENSIFIED TRAINING, IMPROVED TEACHING, AND RECOGNITION OF THE TEACHER AS AN AGRICULTURAL LEADER IN THE COMMUNITY. THE ADULT AND YOUNG FARMER RESPONDENTS INDICATED THAT SHORT COURSES WERE VALUABLE AND THAT THE SUBJECTS TAUGHT MET THEIR NEEDS. RESPONDENTS PREFERRED THE SHORT, INTENSIVE TYPE OF PROGRAM. ALL VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURAL TEACHERS WHO WERE NOT CONDUCTING ORGANIZED EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS PRIOR TO SPONSORING SHORT COURSES HAD INITIATED SUCH PROGRAMS OR PLANNED TO DO SO.
