Gender Equity: Policy and Guidelines for Implementation.
Saskatchewan Dept. of Education, Regina.
An overview of Saskatchewan's gender equity policy and guidelines for its implementation are presented in this report. Facilitated by the need to ensure equal opportunities for male and female students in the province, the policy is designed to reflect gender equity in all components of the educational system--curriculum, resource materials, instructional and assessment practices, school environment, student development programs, school/community interactions, and monitoring. Following a policy rationale statement and definition of gender equity, the policy and its basic principles are outlined. The next part discusses the relationship of the four components of the core curriculum (required areas of study, common essential learnings, locally determined options, and the adaptive dimension) to gender equity. Guidelines for implementation are next discussed in relation to the seven educational system components previously listed, and suggestions for interagency cooperation are made. A conclusion is that gender bias in the schools is inherent in the educational system's framework. Seven charts that list guidelines for action at the state, school division, and school levels; a glossary; and a summary of gender equity research conclusions are included.
