The beginning of FFA The FFA (future-farmers of america) was founded in 1928. A handful of farmboys saw the importance of agriculture education. They got together and ﬂeshed out the future for this soon-to-be organization that would soon educate young people on agriculture. But they could not for-see what it would soon come to be. Nowadays, the FFA teaches millions of students, (that’s alot). That fact itself is a big change from the handful that it started with.
The public law 105 - 225Formerly known as the “Public Law 81-740”, when the 81st congresssaw the importance of ag education. They granted a federal charter tothe FFA. But in 1998, the 105 congress reviewed and passed thetechnical amendments. This shows through the revisions as the publiclaw of 105-225.
