Future Farmers of America and Career Education. Monographs on Career Education.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
This document is one in a series of monographs aimed at providing a narrative summary of ideas and thoughts gathered from particular community segments represented in a series of mini-conferences held to discuss the concept of collaboration in career education. In this monograph, the career education activities of the Future Farmers of America (FFA) are discussed. First, the FFA organization is described including its relationship to vocational agriculture instructional programs and to 4-H operations. Next the career education leadership efforts of the National FFA Center are reviewed. The career education responsibilities of vocational agriculture teachers are listed and several programs which help prepare vocational agriculture teachers to participate in career education are described. Finally, ways of re-establishing effective vocational education/career education relationships are suggested, based upon ideas expressed by participants in the mini-conferences. Appended are lists of mini-conference participants and of related issues and questions generated in the mini-conference. (The proceedings of each mini-conference are reported in detail in ERIC documents CE 020 110-111). (BM)
