Institutional Sex Bias in Public Schools: Will the Walls Come Tumbling Down?
McDonald, Scott C.; And Others
This document reports the findings of a study of sex bias and Title IX compliance in California schools. Three fundamental questions are addressed: (1) What is the impact of Federal programs to reduce sex bias in schools?; (2) Is a quantitative measure of Title IX compliance feasible, reliable, and valid?; and (3) What other factors affect acceptance of Title IX? Significant findings are that: (1) institutional change regarding Title IX can be measured by a valid and reliable quantified instrument scaling procedure; (2) Federal programs to reduce sex bias in schools do produce many of their intended results; and (3) demographically, school districts most likely to benefit from programs were relatively small, nonmetropolitan, elementary school districts that had not had any prior contact with equity training and technical assistance programs. Appendices contain the research instrument and pre- and post-treatment data. (KH)
