Agricultural Education prepares students for a wide range of opportunities in continuing education and employment. By allowing students of all academic and economic backgrounds to be involved in the agricultural classroom, students are capable of having an appreciation for agriculture and the environment. The classroom not only helps students develop essential career preparation skills but also is capable of providing personal growth that will benefit students now and in the future. By including all students in the agriculture classroom, all students are impacted in various ways. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact on students and faculty where inclusive learning is in place. Studies have indicated that not only are there tremendous benefits for a student with special needs in the agricultural classroom, but for all parties involved. Further preparation for faculty would also increase the positive impact of the inclusive learning experience.
