Public Law 81-740
Transcript of Public Law 81-740
2. Agricultural experiences
3. Intracurricular student organization activities Although this law only specifically chartered FFA, it allowed for other CTSOs to become federally recognized student organizations. 10 national associations have been established since the passing of Public Law 81-740 in the areas of:
Family and Consumer Sciences
Trades and Technical Fields
Technology Education On August 12, 1998, the 105th Congress passed Public Law 105-225, a revision of the then outdated Public Law 81-740. Congress outlined 14 elements that were essential to FFA in this revision of Public Law 81-740 including: (1) Organization
(4) Governing body
(5) National officers
(7) Exclusive right to name, seals, emblems, and badges
(9) Availability of personnel, services, and facilities of Department of Education
(10) Headquarters and principal office
(11) Records and inspection
(12) Service of process
(13) Liability for acts of officers and agents
(14) Distribution of assets on dissolution or final liquidation The most important element outlined in Public Law 105-225 for FFA was purpose because it outlined why FFA is an organization. These purposes of FFA are:
(1) create, foster, and assist subsidiary chapters composed of students and former students of vocational agriculture in public schools qualifying for Federal reimbursement
(2) develop character, train for useful citizenship, and foster patriotism
(3) create and nurture a love of country life by encouraging members to improve the farm home and its surroundings
(4) encourage the practice of thrift
(5) procure for and distribute to State associations, local chapters, and members all official supplies and equipment
(6) publish an official magazine and other publications for the members
(7) strengthen the confidence of young men and women in themselves and their work
(8) cooperate with others, including State boards for vocational education, in accomplishing these purposes
(9) engage in other activities, consistent with these purposes. Currently, two-thirds of all career and technical education teachers report that their classes are linked to a CTSO at the national level. Thus, Public Law 81-740 and the revision, Public Law 105-225, have been successful in transforming the career and technical education landscape for the better. References
