The primary purpose of the investigation reported in this bulletin was to obtain an evaluation of current programs of agricultural instruction in the high schools and colleges of Iowa, especially those programs intended for actual farm operators. A secondary purpose was to obtain suggestions for the improvement of these programs.
The general technique employed was to secure the considered judgments of a group of successful farmers of the state on the following questions: (1) The amount of education, both general and agricultural, needed by farmers, (2) the adequacy and quality of programs of agricultural instruction now being offered in our high schools and colleges, (3) the proper objectives to be achieved in programs of agricultural instruction, for farmers and (4) the quality of the curriculum for farm operators recently introduced at Iowa State College.
