A Guide for Planning Facilities for Vocational Agriculture in Texas.
Hindman, Neal; Eggenberger, Lewis
A guide to assist those concerned in planning adequate, well-designed facilities for departments of vocational agriculture that will serve their communities in the future. The program of vocational agriculture is an integral part of the total educational program of a school and considerable thought and careful study should be given to locating the department. Vocational agriculture is a community program in which farmers, ranchers, and other agriculture personnel participate in organized instruction. The need for a classroom of adequate size should be recognized along with all related environmental factors, such as finishes, lighting, heating, cooling and equipment. A storage room, readily accessible to the classroom, should be provided for the storage of instructional supplies and teaching aids, and sufficient office space to permit convenient and safe storage of all official records and correspondence of the department be provided. Considerable study and planning should be undertaken when planning the agriculture mechanics laboratory. A locker room, shop storage facilities and surfaced apron should also be provided. (RK)
