Twenty-third Annual Southern Region Research Conference in Agricultural Education.
Lee, Jasper S., Ed.
The report of the conference proceedings of the Southern Region Research Conference in Agricultural Education has summarized the presentations of 17 speakers. Some topics covered were: private foundation grantsmanship; problems of agricultural teacher reciprocity, certification, and recruiting; pre-teacher attitudes; follow-up studies of non-teaching agricultural education graduates. Reports presented included a progress and procedural report on the vocational-technical education consortium of States (V-TECS) and a report from the national committee on agribusiness competencies. A number of presentations centered on the State of Virginia--V-TECS, annual local evaluation programs, needed vocational education research, administrative role of principals of vocational-technical centers, evaluation of occupational hazards in agricultural education laboratories, use of the Krebs model for program evaluation, use of occupational data concerning former vocational agriculture students, and local results of the content-use study. Other presentations pertaining to particular States were the use of resource people for vocational agriculture in Kentucky and an evaluation of the Texas pre-employment laboratory program for training high school farm machinery mechanics. Approximately 25 pages consist of appendixes that summarize mini-reports on State research and development projects in progress, committee reports on research needs and regional research projects, and the conference program.
