How to...Strategies for Sex Equity. "The Role of the Educational Administrator".
Stiegler, C. B.
This monograph is designed to motivate and assist Kentucky vocational administrators in fulfilling their role in achieving sex fair vocational education. Section 1 describes the status of vocational education in Kentucky and the United States. These areas are covered: changing roles of men and women, composition of the labor force, undersupply of qualified workers for nontraditional occupations, enrollment figures, and summary of a sex bias analysis. The focus of section 2 is the educational administrator's role in sex fair vocational education. These responsibilities are discussed: (1) identification of problems in the vocational program through diagnostic analysis or surveys and (2) administration of an eight-step planned program for change. Section 3 suggests five specific strategies and actions to help administrators in their efforts to promote sex equity in their vocational programs: Administrative Planning Guide, Suggested Survey Form, Policy Statement Strategy, Awareness Strategies, and Reinforcement Strategies. Section 4 summarizes legislation concerning sex fair employment and vocational education. A list of sources for sex equity resource materials is appended. (YLB)
