What is US School-Based Agricultural Education's role in Global Food Security?

Melanie Berndtson, an Agriscience Educator at Wellsboro High School in Pennsylvania is currently attending the National Agriscience Teacher Ambassador Academy in Maryland sponsored and supported by DuPont. She recently shared the following video in the National Association of Agricultural Educators (NAAE) Community of Practice on Global Agriculture:

As I was watching this video, I keep thinking about what is the role that US School-based agricultural education can actively take to help address the issue?

Very interesting...are we empowering our amazing students to view themselves as having the capacity to truly help make the world (and thus our local communities) a better place?

What are you thoughts? What can/should we do?

A worthwhile issue to keep applying purposeful deep thought to.

Keep doing great things,
