Students in public and private schools have a greater opportunity to receive access to agriculture education, yet there is a group of students who are being left behind in the opportunity to receive agriculture literacy. Many students do not have access to agriculture education, yet there is a strong urge for graduates with agricultural degrees. There is a lack of research in homeschooled students receiving agriculture curriculum in their studies. As the population continues to steadily grow, the need for agriculturally literate consumers has increased. Promoting students' ability to receive agriculture curriculum will build agriculture literacy within the education system. This research is to understand the needs within homeschool education in order to incorporate agriculture education.
