Report of the Action Committee on Agricultural Education.
Taylor, Robert E.
This report is presented in four parts. Part one presents a philosophy of agricultural education. Part two describes the role of the biological sciences in agricultural education, important biological principles and concepts, and suggested programs for prospective students. Part three includes a discussion of the role of mathematics, chemistry and physics in agricultural education. Part four, the appendix, presents a discussion of the essential concepts in an agricultural education curriculum. This report is made with consideration of the following anticipated developments: (1) the continued importance of agriculture and the biological sciences on the national and international scene, (2) the critical shortage of agricultural educators both now and in the future, (3) the recognition that agricultural education is a broad field requiring generalists and specialists, (4) the need to improve the biological science preparation of agricultural educators, (5) the belief that agricultural educators need initial understanding of basic biological principles and concepts, and (6) the continued need for providing additional emphasis and reinforcement of these basic principles and concepts.
