Agricultural educators in Thailand were surveyed to ascertain the importance of program goals, basic principles, and program standards. Responses were collected from 182 schools that offered programs of secondary agricultural education. Twenty-one goal statements, ten basic prinicple statements, and forty program standard statements received mean ratings of average importance or above. A conceptual model was developed to reflect the goals, basic principles, and program standards that were important for secondary agricultural education in Thailand. The program model was constructed as a guide for future program development and evaluation efforts. Properly implemented, the program model should be an effective tool to improve secondary agricultural education in Thailand.
