Equity and Vocational Education: Guidelines for the 1980s.
Gappa, Judith M.
A study examined 17 papers dealing with the issue of equity in vocational education. Synthesized during the study were ideas set forth in papers written by individuals involved in the academic community, vocational education, and special interest group advocacy. All the papers, to varying degrees, focus on the barriers posed by vocational delivery systems, financial constraints, employment discrimination, and economic problems to the following special needs groups: disadvantaged persons, disabled persons, limited-English proficient individuals, older adults, members of racial and ethnic minority groups, and men and women who experience sex discrimination. Based on the points raised in these papers, the researcher developed a series of recommendations pertaining to the implementation of Title II of the Education Amendments of 1976; improved communication; and shared responsibility, training of vocational educators and administrators, curricula and services, funding alternatives, and research priorities.
