About Ag In The Classroom
The mission of Agriculture in the Classroom is to “increase agricultural literacy through K-12 education.” An agriculturally literate person is defined as “one who understands and can communicate the source and value of agriculture as it affects our quality of life.”
Agriculture in the Classroom (AITC) programs seek to improve student achievement by applying authentic, agricultural-based content as the context to teach core curriculum concepts in science, social studies, language arts and nutrition. By encouraging teachers to embed agriculture into their classroom, AITC cultivates and understanding and appreciation of the food and fiber system that we all rely on every day.
AITC’s vision that “agriculture is valued by all” is unique within the agricultural education community and position itself as the lead organization to serve the full spectrum of K-12 formal education.
