School Administration. Multicultural Nonsexist Education in Iowa Schools.
Iowa State Dept. of Public Instruction, Des Moines.
Presented as a handbook for administrators, this pamphlet is intended as an aid in directing and managing a school's multicultural, nonsexist education plans. The support of superintendents and administrators is strategic in successful implementation of such plans. Through their support and leadership, administrators determine whether school board policy and plans are translated into visible, viable programs and curriculum activities in the schools. The pamphlet includes a list of definitions of important terms, the Iowa Code, a list of goals and objectives, and a self evaluation checklist for administrators to review their programs and determine their compliance with the basic concepts of multicultural, nonsexist education. An annotated bibliography of resource materials relating to the issue and a list of resource organizations available to Iowa administrators are also included. (MD)
