Ag in the Classroom
In 1981, Agriculture in the Classroom was initiated by the current U.S. Secretary of Agriculture John Block to improve “agricultural literacy” among students. Since then, we’ve come a long way, but there is still a lot of work to be done. Today we utilize online resources, county farm days, school garden grants, teacher recognition, professional development and much more to promote agricultural literacy.
