A Model for Education in Agriculture below College Level for Thailand with Emphasis on Education in Agriculture in the Private Agricultural School.
Tesna, Dharm
The purpose of the study was to develop a model for a privately supported institution teaching agriculture in Thailand. Information was obtained from related agencies in Thailand and international sources about the needs and problems of education in agriculture. The primary inquiry focused on the value of the education in agriculture to Thailand and a curriculum guide was developed based on the implication of educational theories and practices. It was concluded that agricultural education was worth considerable investment because of its potential contribution to the people both socially and economically; and that it should be a primary concern of the government in the administration of rural education. A discrepancy existed between student goals and goals set at the national level. Special education in agriculture offered to the self-settlement students in the farm settlement programs, and the pilot projects of integrating agriculture into academic high school curriculum, seemed very promising. A Thai private agricultural school should aim to teach both those who are already in farming and those who eventually will do so. (PT)
