The Implementation of Change: Implications for Policies and Procedures Relating to Sex Bias and Discrimination in Vocational Education. Final Report, March 1, 1979-June 30, 1980.
The primary purpose of a project was to describe the dynamics of attitude and behavior change with implications for vocational education. Secondary purposes were to determine and document efforts of various states and agencies relating to sex equity and to formulate a series of recommendations concerning equity programs in vocational education in Florida. Methods used included a review of theories and research relating to change and a survey of equity problems in eight southeastern states. Many useful resources were also identified during this identification process. A survey of equity concerns of the vocational directors in Florida was conducted which included assessment of their perceptions of successfulness of various programs and strategies. Results from these procedures were used to develop a set of recommendations relating to equity programs. These recommendations are presented in the findings and analysis section of the paper. Strategies and activities for implementing sex equity are listed and briefly discussed. Findings are presented in a series of five products available separately through ERIC--see note. (YLB)
