This booklet presents strategies for making changes in educational policy to eliminate sex discrimination against girls and women. The first step is to organize, or form a coalition of organizations that provides credibility and resources. Second, to establish the case, a number of practices are listed that evidence discrimination in the areas of curriculum materials, course offerings, guidance and counseling, athletics, teacher and staff behavior, pregnant students, and school staff. Third, procedures for filing complaints of legal noncompliance are outlined. The fourth strategy is a model of five important recommendations to be included in a letter to the chief state school officer. The final strategy involves focusing on local school superintendents and pressing for an affirmative action plan. The second part of the booklet is a brief description of affirmative action programs in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and, at the state level, in Pennsylvania. (MLF)
