A lack of available evidence in Nebraska to formulate decisions based on the opinions of school administrators, regarding programs in agricultural education at the high school level, prompted the investigator to propose a study which was designed to obtain the opinions of high school administrators regarding selected aspects of the program of vocational agriculture in Nebraska.Additionally the study was designed to then present those opinions in a form that would be considered useful to a variety of state and local supervisors of vocational agriculture programs as well as teachers and educators.This study was limited to superintendents and principals in the 124 Nebraska public schools which offered vocational agriculture as part of their curriculum during the 1970-1971 school year. The data collecting instrument, as prepared in the form of a questionnaire, was collected by a mail survey.
