Several studies have been conducted in Nebraska regarding the occupational status of former vocational agriculture graduates. These studies were conducted on a local school basis.This study, however, was designed to analyze, on a statewide basis, the relationship of vocational agriculture to factors associated with the occupations of Nebraska male farm high school graduates who were graduated from high school nine to 13 years earlier.The specific objectives of the study were to determine:
The relationship of vocational agriculture instruction to the academic achievement of the graduates
The relationship of post-high school educational and occupational factors of graduates to vocational agriculture instruction received in high school
The relationship of home environment of graduates to vocational agriculture instruction received in high school
The relationship of enrollment in vocational agriculture to enrollment in other academic subjects while attending high school
The relationship of instruction in vocational agriculture to establishment of graduates in farming
The relationship of vocational agriculture instruction to migration of graduates away from their home communities
