Murray, John; And Others
This task force report of the agricultural educational policy committee of the American Vocational Association focuses on the role of the vocational agriculture teacher. The first part of this report summarizes the philosophy needed by all teachers, major program objectives perceived by teachers of agriculture for their students, functions of an agriculture teacher, and instructor qualifications. The second half of the report lists the future concerns and needs in agricultural education: supply of qualified instructors, funding, opportunity for advancement, workload, decreasing emphasis in providing for supervised occupational experience programs, lack of adequate agricultural manpower needs information, erosion of program area identity, decrease in state staff, budgetary/staff cutbacks at teacher education institutions, decreasing enrollments, increasing proliferation of Future Farmer of America activities, reduction in year-round programs, increasing legislative mandates, and erosion of national and state leadership.
