Minnesota Women & Education.
Council on the Economic Status of Women, St. Paul, Minn.
This report examines the educational status of Minnesota women in all public institutions, with emphasis on the effect of education on women's economic status. It addresses both the amount and kind of education women receive and to what extent educational systems are adapting to the changing needs of women. The book is divided into discussions of females on three educational levels: elementary secondary education, higher education, and vocational education. Survey results are used throughout to point up the place of females as compared to males in the educational system. A brief discussion is offered of older students, many of whom are women. Among the many recommendations offered by the book is that state and federal laws prohibiting sex discrimination, sex bias, and sex stereotyping be vigorously enforced. Also, explicit recognition of the changing roles of women and economic implications of educational and employment choices should be provided in recruitment, admissions, counseling, and educational materials.
