Part II describes the relationship between the federal education agencies and the pervasive sex discrimination documented in Part I. Chapter I outlines existing discrimination in Health, Education and Welfare programs and necessary steps to carry out a legal mandate to end discrimination in federal education programs. Chapter II presents a plan for creative federal leadership in fulfilling the spirit of the laws against sex discrimination. (Author/MJM)
