The purpose of Agricultural Education is the preparation of individuals for entry-level positions as high school agriculture teachers.
Outside of the classroom, the majority of county-level extension agents and vocational technical institute agriculture teachers have also prepared themselves initially as high school agriculture teachers.
Because agricultural education includes a cross section of classes from all areas of agriculture, graduates are also employed by various sectors of agriculture. Some even return to farming.
