Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to compare employment rates of vocational agriculture program completers from Chinle High School in Arizona with employment rates of non-Hispanic Native Americans residing in the same area and of comparable age. In addition, program completers' perceptions of the competencies taught and the value of the vocational agriculture program at Chinle High School were ascertained. Results indicated vocational agriculture program completers from Chinle High School had higher employment rates than the comparison group. Program completers were employed in a variety of occupations, the highest frequency working in production agriculture enterprises. Program completers were using many Core Curriculum Competencies taught in the vocational agriculture program. The competencies were used in primary vocations, avocations, or both. Program completers placed a high value on their experiences while enrolled in the vocational agriculture program at Chinle High School. The program was given high ratings by participants.
