Agricultural Science Teachers’ Perceptions of Male and Female Agricultural Science Teachers in South Texas

Randall H. Williams, Paula K. Bodenhamer, Robn D. Haggerton


Agricultural science education is a male-intensive field. However, in recent years the role of women has expanded. Only 3.9% of agricultural science teachers in Texas are female, ranking well below the national average of 9.7%. The 357 male and 29 female teachers surveyed in Areas III, VII, and X in South Texas made judgements about teaching and leadership competencies. Males were ranked higher in agricultural mechanics, animal science and SAE programs project supervision. Females ranked higher in horticulture.
