Guidelines for Developing Sex Bias Free Vocational Education Programs in Small Secondary Schools in Alaska.
Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau.
These guidelines, developed by a nine-member task force, were designed to help district administrators, curriculum planners, building principals/head teachers, vocational education directors, and teachers in small rural secondary schools in Alaska to plan, implement, and administer vocational education programs that are free of sex bias. The content is presented in five sections. The first, an introduction, covers women workers in the national work force and in Alaska, vocational education for women in Alaska, sex discrimination legislation, and definitions of terms. Then follows a brief section on philosophy, which presents a philosophical statement of the task force and planning guidelines. The third section, on the law and the task, first covers guidelines for developing a small, rural secondary vocational education program (learning activities, processes, and content) and vocational education personnel (roles, responsibilities, and competencies appropriate to the community); it then presents a personnel needs assessment model, facilities guidelines, and funding criteria. Finally, guidelines for evaluating vocational education instructional materials are presented (includes an evaluation checklist). A summary section and one on grievance procedures conclude this booklet. (EM)
