An Analysis of Costs and Benefits to Students for Technical Agribusiness Education.
Patterson, Stanley Douglas
The major purposes of this study were to ascertain the private costs and employee benefits of 2 years of postsecondary technical education in agribusiness. The primary population for the study consisted of 102 graduates of Illinois postsecondary technical agribusiness programs. Conclusions were based on returns of an agribusiness employee survey and job satisfaction scale from 95 percent of the primary population, 79 percent of the comparison population with no postsecondary education, and 100 percent of the comparison population with postsecondary non-agriculture education. Graduates of technical agriculture programs were receiving average monthly salaries of $549 in agricultural supply occupations and $433 in agricultural mechanics occupations. Graduates of technical agriculture programs who were employed in agriculture supply occupations were receiving significantly higher salaries than their high school classmates who had received no postsecondary education. Differences were also found regarding costs of technical education. This Ed. D. dissertation was submitted to the University of Illinois. (GB)
