THE CONTRIBUTION OF AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION TO THE RURAL DEVELOPMENT OF ETHIOPIA.
KERBRET, MAKONNEN
AN ANALYSIS OF THE PRESENT SITUATION IN ETHIOPIA AND A REVIEW OF AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION DEVELOPMENT IN THE WORLD WAS MADE THROUGH INTENSIVE LIBRARY RESEARCH. GUIDELINES AND OBJECTIVES WERE BASED ON THE REVIEW SUBMITTED TO A JURY OF EXPERTS FOR VERIFICATION. REVISED GUIDELINES AND OBJECTIVES WERE THEN DEVELOPED FOR GUIDING AND IMPLEMENTING THE AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS IN ETHIOPIA. SOME ASPECTS OF THE ROLE OF AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION WERE ANALYZED, PROPOSALS WERE MADE AS TO THEIR CONTRIBUTION TO THE RURAL DEVELOPMENT OF ETHIOPIA, AND A THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK FOR AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION WAS DEVELOPED. THE JURY OF EXPERTS FAVORED THE INTRODUCTION OF AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION TO ORIENT AND EDUCATE ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL CHILDREN, TO TRAIN YOUNG AND ADULT FARMERS, AND TO EDUCATE PROSPECTIVE FARMERS AND TECHNICAL EXPERTS AT THE SECONDARY AND POST-SECONDARY LEVEL. IT WAS AGREED UNANIMOUSLY THAT THE COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE SHOULD INITIATE A PROGRAM TO PREPARE PROSPECTIVE TEACHERS. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT INITIATE AND ADMINISTER A RURAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM FOR UTILIZING ETHIOPIA'S HUMAN AND NATURAL RESOURCES WHICH ARE CONCENTRATED IN THE RURAL AREAS.
