Over 70 recommendations are contained in this report submitted to the Joint Committee on Vocational Education by Steiger, Fink, and Kosecoff, Inc. This outside agency received a contract in December, 1978, to: (1) evaluate activities and services provided by the State Department of Education and the Chancellor's Office of the California Community Colleges to eliminate sex bias, sex discrimination, and sex stereotyping; (2) provide networks throughout the state for the exchange of information; and (3) provide information and assistance to all concerned parties on submitting sex bias grievances. Their recommendations are grouped under several topics, including: review of the state plan and federal mandate; local site visits; review of extant data; network components such as a newsletter, a hotline, and grievance assistance; responsibilities of the Chancellor's Office and the State Department of Education; creating awareness; publicity; data collection on male/female enrollments in vocational education and employment; development of support actions; distribution of grants and contracts; program reviews; monitoring legislation; assisting local educational agencies; Title IX self-evaluation; in-service training; activities under various laws; support services for women; and displaced homemakers and other groups.
