Education: The Critical Filter. A Statistical Report on the Status of Girls and Women in Elementary and Secondary Education. Volume 1.
This volume is a progress report on the status of women in elementary and secondary education. Two other volumes focus on postsecondary education. The most recent statistics available are used, and often updates of previous studies have been sought. The report emphasizes national data, and broad surveys or studies received preference. The intention of the publication is to report on the similarities and differences between females and males in elementary and secondary education. The report is organized according to concerns--student, and then professional. Information is first presented on the student-related concerns of enrollment; role portrayal in instructional materials; courses; athletics and extracurricular activities; and outcomes (including grades, knowledge, aptitudes, graduation, intent to continue education, intended areas of future study, and attitudes). Then, information is presented on the professional concerns of training, employment, salary, and governance. (Author/MLF)
