Vocational Education and Civil Rights.
Office for Civil Rights (ED), Washington, DC.
This pamphlet discusses the "Guidelines for Eliminating Discrimination and Denial of Services on the Basis of Race, Color, National Origin, Sex, and Handicap in Vocational Education Programs," first issued by the Office for Civil Rights in 1979, and how they relate to the civil rights of students and staff. It also outlines the responsibilities of recipients of federal assistance (schools, colleges, proprietary schools, and vocational education centers). The first section of the pamphlet discusses access to education, including public notification, nondiscrimination policies, student recruitment, student financial assistance, admissions criteria, student counseling, work study, apprenticeship training, job placement, employment of faculty and staff, and availability of programs to students with disabilities. The second section covers state education agency responsibilities, including site selection for vocational education facilities and establishment of a civil rights compliance program. The pamphlet includes a list of U.S. Department of Education regional civil rights offices. (KC)
