Data are not available that will give more than a partial idea of the extent to which work in agriculture is a part of the program of secondary education in this country. The 1922 report of the Federal Board for Vocational Education contains the most complete information available regarding instruction in vocational agriculture. Vocational agriculture as used in the Federal board's report refers to the instruction that presumably met the standards set up by State boards for vocational education under the provisions of the Federal vocational education act. Due to the fact that there are practically no objective standards by which the vocational effectiveness of this instruction may be measured, there are undoubtedly many schools not included in the report of the Federal board in which the instruction functions quite as effectively in vocational ways as does that of many schools which are included. In spite of this defect, the data contained in the report give a fairly complete idea of the present magnitude of instruction in vocational agriculture and the rate at which it has developed in recent years. Contents include: (1) Agriculture in secondary schools; (2) Types of schools and classes; (3) Development of curricula; (4) State supervision; (5) Growth of teacher-training facilities; (6) Relationships between agricultural education agencies; and (7) Agricultural education at meetings.
