FFA provides one-of-a-kind learning opportunities for students across the United States. It's not an extra-curricular activity, but an integral part of well-round education.
Unfortunately, not everyone sees it this way. Some of our agriculture teachers have to fight hard to keep their agriculture and FFA programs in schools, when faced with budget cuts and other unfortunate circumstances.
