Agriculture Education

Agriculture Education

Teacher education in agriculture has always had as its purpose the preparation of individuals for entry-level positions as high school teachers of agriculture. The majority of county-level extension agents and vocational technical institute agriculture teachers have also prepared themselves initially as high school agriculture teachers.

Because agricultural education includes a cross section of classes from all areas of agriculture, graduates are also employed by various sectors of agribusinesses. Some even return to farming.
