What is Agricultural Education?
The agricultural education program at Big Sandy Junior/High School teaches students about agriculture food, and natural resources. Through these subjects, students develop a wide variety of skills including science, math, communications, leadership, management, and technology.
Agricultural Education is delivered through three interconnected components
- Classroom or laboratory instruction
- Supervised Agricultural Experiences: Experiences that apply what is learned in the classroom to real life situation outside the classroom
- FFA/ Leadership Education
Successful integration of each of these three components results in a strong program that produces well rounded individuals who are prepared to be leaders in agriculture, business, and industry
