The Board on Agriculture organized a Forum on Agriculture's Role in K-12 Education to provide an opportunity for agricultural professional societies to explore ways in which examples from agriculture, food, and environment systems can be used to enhance inquiry-based science education. Participants discussed how professional societies could enhance the continued education of K-12 teachers, improve school science programs, and increase collaboration with other professional societies and science teachers. This booklet presents the proceedings of this forum. Chapters include: (1) A Scientist's Role in K-12 Education; (2) Scientist and Teacher Partnerships; (3) Sustaining Support for Science Education; and (4) Future Roles for Professional Societies and Scientists.
