Public relations, as related to vocational agriculture in the Centerville School District, has not met the writer's expectations. Although vocational agriculture in the Centerville School District has made strides upward, public relations have not met the standards desired by the Centerville agriculture teacher. A variety of supervised farming programs of boys and adult farmers has been a factor in promoting better relations but as yet there has not been a complete understanding of and cooperation with the school's vocational agriculture program by the community. Until the community as a whole understands the purposes, aims, and the objectives of vocational agriculture as prescribed by the State, public relations will continue to lag.

Therefore, there is a need for a guide that will show what the vocational agriculture teacher can do to foster public relations.

The Study is important in order to: 1. Determine through an investigation the place of vocational agriculture in promoting public relations in the Centerville School District. 2. Discover ways and means of promoting public relations through vocational agriculture. 3. Improve the vocational agriculture teacher's present public relations practices. 4. Incorporate and develop a guide for utilizing present vocational agriculture public relation practices and practices that have been successfully used by others.
