Abstract or Summary
  • Purpose: This study attempted to identify skills needed in agriculture for rural youth in Honduras, and to develop an appropriate agricultural education curriculum at the Common Cycle of General Culture (lower Middle School level) of the current educational system. Methods and Procedures: Core competencies were identified by collecting information from 56 individuals representing: government technical personnel dealing with agricultural education, government technical personnel dealing with agricultural loans, and agricultural producers. The Pearson chi-square statistic was used to determine independence between sources of response and type of response. The curriculum model was based both on quantitative and qualitative information. Findings, Conclusions and Recommendations: A high degree of consensus existed among technical personnel belonging to government institutions regarding agricultural skills perceived needed by rural youth in Honduras. Producers and technical personnel dealing with agricultural education tended to respond differently more often than any other group. Conclusions were presented by specific objective. Competencies were identified and listed for the Common Cycle of General Culture (lower Middle School level) and an appropriate curriculum was developed along with a program for its implementation. This curriculum considered basic skills, integrating different subjects into single courses and emphasizing practical aspects of production agriculture. Recommendations were developed for: 1) implementation of the new curriculum as an integral component of the Common Cycle, 2) a teacher preparation program, 3) an agricultural youth organization, and 4) program institutionalization.
