Development of Agricultural Instruction in Secondary Schools. Bulletin, 1919, No. 85
Barrows, H. P.
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
This bulletin represents a thesis presented by the late Harry Percy Barrows to the faculty of George Washington University in 1919 for the degree of doctor of philosophy. It furnishes an historic record that should be very helpful in the future development of instruction in agriculture in this country. Since secondary instruction in agriculture was developed first in the institutions that later became the colleges of agriculture, this paper covers in a masterly way the early development of collegiate agriculture. Contents of this bulletin include: (1) History of agriculture in secondary schools; (2) State aid for secondary agriculture; (3) Agriculture as taught in some secondary schools; (4) Federal aid for vocational agriculture; (5) Training teachers of agriculture; and (6) Summary of study. A bibliography is included. Individual sections contain footnotes. (Contains 2 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
