Zimet, Sara G., Ed.; Loventhal, Jules, Ed.
During March, 1974, members of twenty-two organizations, representing various administrative levels of education and community groups concerned with issues relating to civil rights and equal educational opportunities, met to discuss stereotyping in education. Issues covered in discussion and workshop groups included sex role, religious and ethnic group stereotyping in education, curriculum materials, classroom practices, counseling procedures, career planning, contract negotiation, ethnic-group and women's studies, and legal avenues for gaining equal educational opportunities. Recommendations for action to eliminate the discrepancies between what is and what should be in an egalitarian, humane society were formulated and directed to various agencies and institutions in the state including the Colorado Department of Education, Colorado Commission on Higher Education, Colorado High School Activities Association, National Educational Association Regional and National Offices, Educational Commission of the States, all district school boards, all state legislators, Colorado Press Association, Colorado television stations, radio stations and newspapers. A follow up committee will be in contact with these agencies to check on the progress toward fulfilling the recommendations. (Author/DE)
