CONTINUING EDUCATION OF ADULTS.
STEVENS, GLENN Z.
AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION FOR FARMERS, ORIGINALLY CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION, HAS BEEN REDESIGNED TO COMBINE ON THE JOB INSTRUCTION WITH CLASS ATTENDANCE. LOCATED IN SCHOOL DISTRICTS HAVING CONCENTRATIONS OF COMMERCIAL FARMS, MOST PROGRAMS STRESS MANAGEMENT EDUCATION AND TECHNOLOGICAL TRAINING. INDIVIDUAL INSTRUCTION TAKES PLACE DURING FARM VISITS AND A SURVEY HELPS DIAGNOSE PROBLEMS AND GUIDE THE FARMER'S ACTIVITIES. CLASSES ARE FORMED WHEN COMMON NEEDS OF TEN OR MORE FARMERS ARE IDENTIFIED AND INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION IS PROVIDED. TECHNICAL EDUCATION FOR OFF FARM OCCUPATIONS IS PROVIDED BY EMPLOYERS OR BY PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS, IN CLASSES AND ON THE JOB. THE YOUNG FARMERS ASSOCIATION GIVES LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE IN IMPROVED FAMILY AND COMMUNITY LIVING. NEW COURSES IN OFF FARM AGRICULTURAL OCCUPATIONS MAY BECOME A MAJOR RESPONSIBILITY OF AREA SCHOOLS PROVIDED BY THE VOCATIONAL EDUCATION ACT OF 1963. FOR AGRICULTURAL TECHNICIANS, PRIMARY PROGRAM EMPHASIS SHOULD BE ON THE UNDERLYING SCIENCES AND GUIDANCE AND PLACEMENT SERVICES BECOME INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT AS EMPLOYMENT DEMANDS RISE. THIS DOCUMENT IS CHAPTER 5 IN AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION BY GLENN Z. STEVENS AND PUBLISHED BY THE CENTER FOR APPLIED RESEARCH IN EDUCATION, INC., NEW YORK. (PT)
