Agricultural Education in Yugoslavia.
A study was made, during 1965-68, of the development and current operation of programs of agricultural education and manpower development in Yugoslavia. Data were also gathered on occupational patterns of graduates, occupational migration, off-job satisfaction and dissatisfaction, hiring plans of agricultural firms, and manpower planning. The rise of elementary agricultural education (1780-1918), the emergence of upper level and extension instruction (1918-40), and postwar expansion were covered. Major findings included the following: (1) 80% of the 1961 and 1966 graduates were currently employed in agricultural occupations; (2) over 72% of graduates resided within 25 kilometers of their childhood homes; (3) occupational dissatisfaction was most often expressed in terms of lack of modern equipment, limited recreational facilities, shortage of modern housing, and low salary; (4) occupational prospects for agricultural school graduates were uncertain. Among the key issues which Yugoslav agriculture will face are developing programs to serve the new generation of private farmers, continued improvement of formal and adult-oriented programs, establishing agricultural teacher and extension agent programs, and forming an occupational placement program for graduates.
