Innovative Agricultural Education Secondary School Programs in Southeast Asia.
Gagni, Arsenio O.; And Others
In an effort to seek out and describe exemplary and innovative features of agricultural high schools in Asian countries, letters of inquiry were sent to the directors of agricultural education programs in Thailand, Republic of China, Japan, and South Korea informing them of a study tour planned by three members of the University of the Philipines Department of Agricultural Education. The letters requested information concerning innovative and outstanding local programs, teacher training institutions, and contact persons through whom arrangements could be made. An interview schedule was used in meetings with government personnel in education, agricultural education department personnel at the leading teacher training institution, and the staff of local agricultural schools in each of the four countries. From these, information was gathered pertaining to aspects of the local school program: location, history, main agricultural enterprise in the area, agricultural trends, administration, methods, students, and staff. The case studies of the following schools were reported: Thailand, Chiengmai College of Agriculture; Republic of China, Taiwan Provincial Taoyuan Senior Vocational Agricultural and Industrial School; South Korea, Suwon Agricultural and Forestry High School; Japan, Schizuoka Agricultural Management Public High School.
