What Is Affirmative Action? Combating Discrimination in Employment.
National Foundation for the Improvement of Education, Washington, DC.; National Education Association, Washington, DC.
Despite numerous laws prohibiting discrimination, millions of citizens are still denied true equality because of their race, sex, creed, or age. This booklet focuses on discrimination in employment, specifically on combating this form of discrimination through affirmative action plans. The guide lists the conditions which necessitate filing a plan; and the conditions of employment specified by federal regulations that should be included in a plan. The most important federal laws and regulations prohibiting discrimination that affect the operating policies of education institutions are cited, and sources of information are listed. A question-answer format is offered as a guide for developing an affirmative action plan. (Author/MLF)
