Opinions of School Administrators Concerning Selected Aspects of the Program of Vocational Agriculture in Nebraska.
Viterna, Larry L.
Designed as a survey of 124 Nebraska public schools offering vocational agriculture, the primary purpose of this study was to obtain opinions of school administrators regarding selected aspects of the vocational agriculture program. A secondary purpose of the study was to present these opinions in a form useful to state and local supervisors of vocational agriculture programs, teacher educators, teachers, advisory councils and local boards of education and school administrators. Among the findings of the study are: (1) More than 90 percent of the administrators indicated preparing youth for agricultural occupations was a major purpose of vocational agriculture, (2) 86 percent of the superintendents in Class A schools indicated girls should be enrolled in vocational agriculture, and (3) About 78 percent indicated a need for a citizen advisory committee to help plan the local program of vocational agriculture. A major conclusion of the study is that school administrators should be involved in planning new programs and receive considerable instruction in the nature and administration of vocational agriculture programs.
