Just like in farming, planting a seed early and nurturing that seed can have lasting benefits. Teachers do this every day across our province and have tremendous influence on their valued students. That is why we want teachers to thinkAG too. The agricultural sector of the province is growing and is essential to world food production. The challenge of our future will be feeding a more populous world. That is why it is important for teachers to understand the importance and opportunities available to their students in agriculture. Whether your students are future captains of industry or excel in hands-on learning, there are a variety of career paths available to them.
Saskatchewan leads the world in research, development and training for a career in agriculture in its universities, colleges and technical institutes. Expanding that learning to elementary, middle and secondary school not only adds to that sterling world reputation, but aligns young people to the opportunities that this exciting industry brings. The future success of our province requires today’s students to become prosperous and productive members of society. As teachers, encouraging them to thinkAG, is providing the foundation for personal and economic success.
