This study is intended to determine the extent to which agricultural training provides specific training to prepare a vocational agriculture student for farming or to help a student who is already established in farming to improve his farming efficiency.
The writer also wishes to find out to what extent vocational agriculture has established in individuals the desire to farm rather than provide them with information about farming or about agriculture in general.
This study is based on data from 90 vocational agriculture students from Area I, Linden District, which is located in the Northeast portion of Texas where the greater portion of the Negro population is engaged in farming. These students were selected at random from the following nine schools: Rhodes High School, Daingerfield; Fairview High School, Linden; Macedonia High School, Texarkana; Hooks High School, Hooks; Shady Grove High School, New Boston; Garland High School, De Kalb; Bethlehem High School, De Kalb; Carver High School, Naples.
