Bromfield, Sandra; Kilmurray, James A.
This guide is intended to help teachers, counselors, and other vocational educators to develop programs that increase access to vocational opportunities for females, minorities, disadvantaged, handicapped students, and students with special needs of limited English proficiency in Massachusetts. The guide is divided into four parts. Part 1, Strategies for Promoting Equal Access, consists of program components which can be combined and adapted to meet the needs of individual schools or populations. The strategies address three critical areas: (1) recruitment into vocational programs; (2) reduction of stereotyping within programs; and (3) support services for nontraditional, minority, and handicapped students. Part 2, Programs for Promoting Equal Access, lists programs being conducted in the state which reflect various ways that the strategies for promoting equal access have been combined to serve specific underserved populations. Part 3, Program/Funding Matrix, describes some sources of money available for funding programs designed to increase access to vocational opportunities. Part 4, Resources, is a list of resources to help teachers, counselors, and vocational educators develop programs for the following populations or issue areas: sex equity, minority groups, special needs students, and limited English-proficient students. An appendix contains a summary of antidiscrimination laws. (KC)
