History of Ag in the Classroom
 
Ag in the classroom was created by the USDA in 1981 to improve Ag literacy. Every state coordinates the activities differently but the end result is the same; students and their families better understand where their food comes from. The Illinois Ag in the Classroom program has an active presence in 62% of all schools, thanks to county coordinators and volunteers at county Farm Bureau offices throughout the state.
