EDUCATION REGARDING CREDIT FOR AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTION. REPORT NO. 2, SURVEY OF TEACHERS OF AGRICULTURE.
PHIPPS, LLOYD J.; AND OTHERS
TWENTY ILLINOIS AGRICULTURE TEACHERS WHO HAD RECEIVED 3 DAYS OF INTENSIVE INSTRUCTION IN FARM MANAGEMENT INCLUDING THE USE OF CREDIT AND 64 RANDOMLY SELECTED AGRICULTURE TEACHERS WITH MORE THAN 1 YEAR OF TEACHING EXPERIENCE IDENTIFIED STUDY AREAS BEING TAUGHT WHICH RELATED TO THE USE OF AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTION CREDIT AND EDUCATIONAL REFERENCES AND TEACHING AIDS BEING USED IN HIGH SCHOOL AND ADULT PROGRAMS. THE PURPOSE OF THE SURVEY WAS TO PROVIDE INFORMATION FOR DEVELOPING INSTRUCTIONAL UNITS FOR TEACHING AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTION CREDIT. ON THE BASIS OF INFORMATION COLLECTED, FOUR UNITS OF INSTRUCTION WERE DEVELOPED--DETERMINING (1) THE PRESENT SITUATION, (2) WHERE TO USE CREDIT FOR CROPS AND LIVESTOCK, (3) WHERE TO USE CREDIT FOR BUILDINGS, MACHINERY, AND EQUIPMENT AND (4) HOW TO USE CREDIT. IN COMPARING THE TWO GROUPS OF TEACHERS, 75 PERCENT OF THE SPECIALLY PREPARED GROUP AND 18.7 PERCENT OF THE RANDOMLY SELECTED GROUP HAD ADULT EDUCATION CLASSES WITH FARM MANAGEMENT . DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE RANDOMLY SELECTED GROUP AND THE SPECIALLY PREPARED GROUP IN NUMBER TEACHING THE PREPARED INSTRUCTIONAL UNITS IN HIGH SCHOOLS WERE NOT SIGNIFICANT. ALL FOUR INSTRUCTIONAL UNITS WERE TAUGHT IN APPROXIMATELY 30 PERCENT OF THE ADULT PROGRAMS WITH SPECIALLY PREPARED TEACHERS AND IN APPROXIMATELY 20 PERCENT OF THOSE WITH THE RANDOMLY SELECTED TEACHERS. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT MANY FARMER AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTION CREDIT PROBLEMS COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED OR MADE EASIER TO HANDLE THROUGH MORE ADEQUATE EDUCATION IN FARM MANAGEMENT IN HIGH SCHOOL AND ADULT CLASSES. INSERVICE TRAINING FOR TEACHERS AND NEW INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS ON THE USE OF AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTION CREDIT ARE NEEDED. (WB)
