TOWARD EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY, FOR TEACHERS IN CALIFORNIA'S PUBLIC SCHOOLS. THIRD ANNUAL REPORT.
MADDOX, EDWARD C.; AND OTHERS
CALIFORNIA'S STATE POLICY IS TO RECOMMEND QUALIFIED PERSONS FOR EMPLOYMENT REGARDLESS OF AGE, MARITAL STATUS, RELIGIOUS CREED, NATIONAL ORIGIN, OR ETHNIC BACKGROUND. THE COMMISSION ON EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES HAS MADE STUDIES ON TEACHER HIRING PRACTICES FOR THE LAST 3 YEARS. PROGRESS IS BEING MADE IN FAIR EMPLOYMENT PRACTICES. DISCRIMINATION AGAINST TEACHERS BECAUSE OF MARITAL STATUS OR NATIONAL ORIGIN REMAINS MINIMAL. THERE IS EVIDENCE THAT A CANDIDATE'S RELIGION OR CREED IS NO LONGER A MAJOR CONSIDERATION IN MOST DISTRICTS. THE AGE BARRIER IS LESS FORMIDABLE. HOWEVER, MANY DISTRICTS EMPLOY POLICIES WHICH MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR TEACHERS OF CERTAIN ETHNIC BACKGROUNDS TO RECEIVE PROPER OR APPROPRIATE CONSIDERATION FOR EMPLOYMENT, AND NEGROES GENERALLY HAVE CONSIDERABLE DIFFICULTY IN SECURING EMPLOYMENT AS TEACHERS. THE COMMISSION CONDUCTS SPEAKING TOURS, WORKSHOPS, AND CONFERENCES. A SCHEDULE IS INCLUDED IN THE TEXT.
