A Program of Teacher Education in Vocational Agriculture for 1970-2000.
Clark, Raymond M.
To meet the anticipated educational needs for vocational agriculture teacher education during 1970-2000, vocational agriculture training programs were proposed for undergraduate, master's, specialist, and doctoral programs, and for noncredit inservice teacher education. The contribution of instructional materials, research, and placement programs are examined. Major recommendations include: (1) Offer all professional undergraduate education courses in off-campus locations and in cooperation with local school districts, (2) Use internship more often at the master's degree level, (3) Limit age of credits acceptable for the specialist degree, (4) Recognize a difference between Doctor of Philosophy and Doctor of Education in terms of kind of dissertation required, (5) Develop a comprehensive program of inservice teacher education, (6) Allocate sufficient staff time to meet the needs for instructional materials dealing with new needs and expanding program areas, (7) Assign staff research time to identify and plan programs in teacher education, and (8) Allocate state and federal funds for teacher education on a long-time basis.
