Within the last ten years the small rural schools of De Soto Parish, Louisana, have been consolidated into large high schools. The writer felt it was time that a study should be made to measure the effectiveness of the vocational agricultural programs in these consolidated districts. If vocational agricultural Instruction in evening school is effective, there should be evidence outside of the classroom .
Purpose of Study
The purpose of this study was threefold: (1) to determine the extent to which vocational agricultural teachers have influenced farmers to use improved practices, (2) to compare improved practices followed by farmers who have attended evening, schools with those of farmers who have not attended evening school, and (3) to discover the major problems that farmers encounter in their farming programs.
Statement of Problem
To what extent have farmers followed improved practices that were taught in evening schools?
How do improved practices followed by farmers who have attended evening schools compare with those followed by farmers who have not attended evening schools?
To what extent has vocational agricultural instruction affected the average yield per acre of the major crops?
