THE EDUCATIONAL NEEDS AND INTERESTS OF THE PART-TIME FARMERS IN HOCKING COUNTY.
YOUNG, DONALD G.
A QUESTIONNAIRE LISTING SEVERAL SPECIFIC AREAS IN ADULT EDUCATION WAS USED TO SURVEY THE EDUCATIONAL NEEDS AND INTERESTS OF A RANDOM SAMPLE OF 246 PART-TIME FARMERS. RESULTS FROM THE 142 RESPONSES WERE INTERPRETED BY THE THREE GROUPINGS OF AGE, EDUCATION, AND FARM INCOME. IT WAS FOUND THAT THE MEDIAN AGE WAS 47.7 YEARS, THE MEDIAN EDUCATIONAL LEVEL WAS 11.3 YEARS, AND THE MEDIAN FARM INCOME WAS $437.50. THE FARMERS OF ALL AGES, EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUNDS, AND INCOME INDICATED THE HIGHEST PRIORITY FOR ADULT EDUCATION IN SUBJECTS RELATED TO FARM OCCUPATIONS, FOLLOWED BY NONFARM OCCUPATIONS, SOCIAL EDUCATION, ARTS, CRAFTS, AND RECREATIONAL AND CULTURAL EDUCATION. OTHER CONCLUSIONS INCLUDED THE FACT THAT THERE WAS A DIFFERENT PRIORITY OF EDUCATIONAL INTERESTS BETWEEN THE GROUPS 55 YEARS AND YOUNGER AND THOSE 55 AND OVER, AND THAT FARM INCOME WAS NOT SIGNIFICANTLY RELATED TO THE PRIORITY OF EDUCATIONAL INTERESTS. (APPENDIXES INCLUDE THE QUESTIONNAIRE USED.) THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY, COLUMBUS. 95 PAGES. (PT)
