Bice, Garry R.
This handbook is designed to serve as a reference for teachers, supervisors, and administrators to use in organizing and implementing vocational agriculture/agribusiness programs for high school students and out-of-school youth in urban areas. Information in the handbook is divided into the following eight primary areas: (1) planning for program initiation, (2) administration, (3) vocational instruction, (4) staffing, (5) equipment and facilities, (6) outreach/recruitment, (7) student placement, and (8) community involvement. Each section includes a basic definition of what is intended by the term, identification of some of the unique issues and needs in the area, goals and objectives to be accomplished by the area, alternative practices with advantages and disadvantages of each, and possible resource requirements for the area. Two additional sections contain a listing of the technical advisory group membership and synopses of nine case studies. (MN)
