Re: AG at Middle School?? What to expect
Ag was added at my jr high this year and they automatically signed up every single 8th grader for it. Kids at my school get 2 elective classes, so some chose band and ag. If they have to take an RTI class they only get 1 elective, so some chose ag because it's new. I lost over 70% of my 8th graders due to that class no matter how much I talked to them, or fought for them. Some say they'll come back to band in High School, but we always have kids say that and it never happens.
We also have a lot of students who show cattle and felt that they just had to be in that class to be able to show, and it didn't matter what I said to negate that, the kids and parents wouldn't listen.
