Multiple-teacher departments of vocational agriculture in Virginia
Multiple-teacher deparments of vocational agriculture
were increasing in number. This conclusion is substantiated by the fact that Virginia rural schools were
consolidating at a rapid rate. The fact that all
multiple-teacher departments have developed in the past
14 years indicates a definite trend to this type of department.
High school enrollment and the size of the area served
by the school does not have a direct bearing on the
number of vocational agriculture teachers in a department. Two teachers served an area as small as 40 square miles, while the same number of teachers in
another school served an area of 881 square miles.
High school enrollment in the twoâ teacher schools varied
from 134 to 1375.
