Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to ascertain the opinions of selected Arizona high school guidance counselors, and teachers of agricultural education. Respondents were asked their opinions concerning: (1) their attitudes toward agricultural education; (2) their perceptions of agricultural education; (3) the effectiveness of the agricultural education departments; (4) the guidance practices being performed in their high school; (5) and selected demographics dealing with their school. Findings of the study included: Agricultural educators and guidance counselors differ in their attitudes toward the effectiveness, perceptions, and guidance practices of the agricultural education program in their school based on a five-part 67 item questionnaire. Thirty seven percent of the guidance counselors gave written comments relevant to the study. According to comments, guidance counselors perceive that agricultural education needs to adapt to a changing technological society.
