UNL is recruiting new ag teachers as the workforce dwindles

A national teacher shortage is making agriculture education positions more difficult to fill.

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln recently announced plans to bolster recruitment and support for high school agriculture education instructors.

Ag Leadership, Education & Communications Associate Professor, Matt Kreifels, spoke with RFD-TV’s own Janet Adkison about the state’s agriculture education, what they are doing to address the shortage and why it is important for the state and other states to have strong high school agriculture education and FFA programs.
