The Administrator's Guide to Equitable Opportunity in Vocational Education. Research and Development No. 208.
Cohen, Stanley B.; And Others
The primary objective of this administrator's guide is to make vocational administrators aware of their equity obligations under the law so that they can discharge their responsibilities to meet the needs of special groups as realistically as possible. In addition, the guide is designed to remind administrators that they have a choice in developing their own philosophy of equity as it relates to vocational education and in reconciling their idea with the pragmatic concerns of helping special groups according to federal mandates. Major sections of the guide define those who may experience discrimination on the basis of handicap, academic or economic disadvantagement, limited-English proficiency, aging, race or ethnic origin, and sex. The guide concludes by listing major laws and implementing rules and regulations that affect selected administrative responsibilities or functions in working with individuals who are discriminated against.
