Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to assess the knowledge base and opinions about agriculture that were held by an urban community college population in the state of Arizona. Faculty members, teaching freshmen composition courses, in the two largest urban community college districts in Arizona were randomly selected and asked to distribute the survey instruments in one of their classes. The knowledge and opinion portions of the survey each contained 40 statements designed to assess a broad scope of agricultural information. The study found that a majority of respondents were not sure about the answers they gave on the knowledge assessment portion of the study. There was a significant difference in the way that minorities responded to questions when compared with non-minorities in both portions of the study. No significant differences were found when comparing responses between those who had previously had agricultural education experiences with those who had not.
