National Teach Ag Campaign

The National Teach Ag Campaign is an initiative to bring attention to the career of agricultural education, get students thinking about a possible career in agricultural education, and support current agriculture teachers in their careers.


Agricultural Education Inclusion Feedback Requested

The National Association of Agricultural Educators, the National FFA Organization and the National Teach Ag Campaign are seeking input from agricultural educators, agricultural education state staff, teacher educators and stakeholders who are willing to contribute to a meaningful and solutions based conversation taking place regarding diversity and inclusion in agricultural education. Information provided through the survey and from focus group sessions held during National FFA Convention will be used to develop meaningful and purposeful diversity and inclusion strategies aimed at achieving the goal of ensuring agriculture classrooms reflect the school and community in which they reside. Responses may also be used in the area of academic research.
