Women in Educational Research: Affirmative Action Plans.
Maccia, Elizabeth S.
In order to provide women educational researchers with equal opportunities, the author proposes that women's affirmative action plans with respect to educational research be instituted, and that the American Educational Research Association (AERA) play a central role in their institution. What is necessary in a women's affirmative action plan for AERA is a statement of commitment to equal opportunity for women to participate in the association, and this commitment must be detailed through policies covering the main categories of associational activities. To accomplish a complete women's affirmative action plan, a full-time women's affirmative action officer should be appointed. AERA thus has a role to play in instituting women's affirmative action plans for the educational research training and/or research organization to which its members belong. (Author/PC)
