Vocational Agriculture Programs in Joint Vocational Schools, Participating Local Schools, and Non-Participating Local Schools.
Edsall, Richard Herbert
To evaluate programs of vocational agriculture offered in joint vocational schools in Ohio as compared to vocational agriculture programs in local high schools, this study utilized data collected from 30 vocational agriculture teachers, 31 counselors, 448 faculty members, and 546 vocational agriculture students in two joint vocational schools, 10 participating local schools, and 12 non-participating local high schools in comparable districts. Results showed: (1) Enrollment in vocational agriculture programs in joint vocational schools stabilizes after 3 years while enrollment in nonparticipating schools increases at a relatively constant rate, (2) Joint vocational schools offer more specialized programs than do local schools, (3) Dropout rates in joint vocational programs are about the same as in local schools, (4) Vocational agriculture students in joint vocational schools have higher current grade achievement in all subjects than do students in local schools, (5) A greater quantity and a better quality of vocational guidance are offered in joint vocational schools than in local schools, and (6) The image of vocational agriculture is rated higher by faculty members and students in joint vocational schools than by faculty and students in local schools. This Ph.D. dissertation was submitted to The Ohio State University. (GB)
