The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) supports Agricultural Education in our Illinois schools as an important component of one of the most important industries in Illinois – the Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources (AFNR) industry.  Agriculture has a major impact on the State’s economy and the industry is eager for additional potential employees in the pipeline to fill the demand for hundreds of careers.  Nowhere is this support more evident than in the support of the Agricultural Education specific line item in the ISBE budget.  See the current ISBE budget​ for appropriations and proposed funding levels.
