Eliminating Sex Bias in Vocational Education: A Handbook for Administrative Personnel.
Hitchens, Donna J.; Thomas, Ann G.
This handbook is designed (1) to assist vocational educators and administrators in understanding both the causes of occupational sex segregation and the problems it creates; (2) to clarify the federal and state mandates for the elimination of sex bias in vocational education programs; and (3) to provide possible approaches and strategies that can be used by vocational education personnel to comply with legal requirements and contribute to the elimination of occupational sex segregation. The handbook's six chapters provide information on the nature of the problem; the laws applicable to vocational education programs; methods of identifying sex bias and creating institutional change; removing barriers to the pursuit of non-traditional education; the treatment of enrolled students; and general conclusions about sex-stereotyping and its elimination. (Sections on state laws apply specifically to California. A workshop manual, designed for use with the handbook, is available separately--CE 027 204.) (KC)
