Introduce Agricultural Education into the High School Curriculum
This petition had 42 supporters
Throughout the United States, there are 3,109,101 public school teachers. Of these, not even one percent accounts for agricultural education teachers. This presents a prominent issue with the educational system in our country. As the number of schools offering agricultural classes decreases so does the number of educated agriculturalists. If we do not make agricultural education a part of education in our country then who will our future farmers be? Only two percent of our population is involved in agriculture.
In Ag classes, students will not only learn more about where their food comes from, but also everyday items, such as clothing, comes from. Young adults educated in agriculture may develop a passion for it, and share true information about the subject, causing a larger amount of educated individuals throughout the country. False information is constantly spread by uninformed individuals, provoking misconceptions regarding the agricultural industry.
If agricultural education is introduced into the high school curriculum, then students will learn more about the agricultural industry, farming, and leadership qualities, such as public speaking. If it is not introduced into the curriculum, then students will not gain any of the knowledge that could become useful to them in the future, and the amount of future agriculturalists will drop extensively.
Please join us in the fight for agricultural education.
