Educational Equity: A Continuing Quest. Seventh Annual Report, 1981.
National Advisory Council on Women's Educational Programs, Washington, DC.
This seventh annual report of the National Advisory Council on Women's Educational Programs covers a wide range of topics. The first part of the publication briefly discusses the new federal role in education. The Advisory Council reviewed the federal sex equity activities in education in light of the Reagan administration's views regarding the federal role in education; e.g., giving the states and localities greater control over education programs and dollars. Actions recommended by the council for maintaining a federal role in providing equal educational opportunities for women are presented. The next part of the report describes the accomplishments of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits sex discrimination in federally assisted education activities. The Women's Educational Equity Act Program (WEEAP) is described and evaluated. Equity in vocational education is discussed. A publication presently being prepared by volunteers which will describe tried and successful solutions to sex equity problems is discussed. The remainder of the report presents the Council's contribution to the U.S. report to the United Nations and Council publications and activities. Also included is the description of a survey conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics to find out about evening and weekend courses leading to bachelor's degrees. The appendices contain a description of the characteristics of WEEAP products according to year of funding, the Women's Educational Equity Act, a listing of council and committee meetings, and a publication order form.
