Excerpt from Effective Farming: A Text-Book for American Schools
As early as 1824 a. Text-book of agriculture was published in the United States. This book was an agricultural reader, by Daniel Adams. In 1837 a Farmer's School Book, by Orville Taylor, was published at Albany and Ithaca, N. Y. For one hundred years there has been pressure for the introduction of agriculture into schools. The subject has waited, however, for many reasons. The industrial development of the middle of the last century undoubtedly obscured the importance of agriculture. The colleges of agriculture were expected to satisfy much of the demand. In the later years of the last century the profits in farming were difficult and small. Schools have been unadapted to teaching in agriculture.
