Q & A
What is Agriculture Education?
Agricultural Education is the teaching of science, business and technology surrounding agriculture, natural resources, animal production, horticulture and land management through hands on experience and guidance. Agricultural Education first became a part of the public education system in 1917 when the U.S. Congress passed the Smith-Hughes Act. Today, over 800,000 students participate in formal agricultural education instructional programs offered in grades seven-adult throughout the 50 states and three U.S. territories.
