Focusing on the status of entrepreneurship education in agriculture at the secondary, postsecondary, and adult/young adult levels, volume 1 of this report presents findings from a national study conducted to provide planning information for a major national initiative on agricultural entrepreneurship education. First, an introductory section provides background to the project and describes its scope. Next, findings are reported for the following 12 study objectives: (1) assessing the need for entrepreneurship education in agriculture; (2) assessing the current level of entrepreneurship knowledge; (3) determining the potential outcomes of infusing entrepreneurship education in curricula; (4) assessing existing entrepreneurship education programs; (5) identifying curricular strategies for implementing entrepreneurship programs; (6) developing specifications for entrepreneurship materials; (7) developing approaches for meeting state and national standards; (8) creating a staffing plan; (9) creating a development plan for the project; (10) strengthening relationships with other agencies; (11) identifying potential action force members; and (12) developing elements and deliverables of the infusion project. The next section presents a proposed national development and infusion plan, based on findings and including information on needs for agricultural education and strategies for meeting those needs. The final section provides supporting documents, including reports of a Delphi study undertaken to determine potential outcomes of infusing enterpreneurship into agricultural education; focus group findings; a national survey of agriculture entrepreneurship instruction; and current activities in entrepreneurship education.
