The purpose of this senior project was to develop a survey to determine the difficulties that high school ornamental horticulture instructors were facing with their programs. Many schools throughout California have faced difficulties with their programs and have had to limit the offerings of the courses that would have been available to their students. Based upon the results from the survey it was determined that many of the instructors felt that their programs had been declining in success due to budget limitations, student involvement, standardized testing requirements and community support. The results of the survey can be utilized to aid the instructors so that their programs could be able to thrive with limited resources.
