Agriculture teachers and supervisors may use this material in developing training programs to meet the educational needs of persons engaged in or preparing to engage in production agriculture and off-farm agricultural occupations. Vocational education in agriculture must contribute to the educational objectives of American public education, the preparation of persons for gainful employment, and the training and retraining of youth and adults. Major objectives of vocational and technical education programs in agriculture are: (1) to develop competencies in production agriculture and nonfarming agricultural occupations, (2) to develop an understanding of career opportunities in agriculture, (3) to secure satisfactory placement and to advance in agriculture, and (4) to develop human relations abilities, and abilities for effective leadership. The appendix describes the development of these objectives for agricultural education. (WB)
