Uppväxtmiljö och i uppväxtmiljön förvärvad djurvana hos elever vid naturbruksgymnasium : Home environment and in home environment acquired animal experience in students of agricultural college
In all types of learning situations, it is important to find each student where they are at the moment in knowledge. I have reflections about what animal experience students have with them when they begin their education. This thesis is about what home environment and in home environment acquried animal experience student at agricultural college have. This work is based on data collected through questionnaire survey done in two agricultural colleges in middle Sweden in the spring of 2007. Questions were divided into four blocks, historical data such as on the environment in which pupils are growing up, animal habit, why they read on agricultural school and future data on what plans students have for future education and careers. Notably current finding is that 44 % of students indicated that they had grown up in rural areas compared to 16 % of the Swedish population. Previous research has shown that 47 % of pupils at agricultural school have grown up on farms, which together with this investigation can be understood as if the school population at agricultural school does not represent the population as a whole in Sweden concerning access to the rural environment and animal habit. With the results above, it may be seen as remarkable that 51 % of the student have filled in that they are not grown up with some kind of animal activities in the home environment and 28 % of the students filled in that they helped little or not at all with animal husbandry at home while growing up. My hope is that this thesis will be followed by additional studies that examine what knowledge students have with them when they begin their education to further develop teaching at agricultural college.
