Clinics for Administrators of Women in Occupational Education. Final Report: 1974-1975.
Barkley, Margaret V.; And Others
Third in an annual series of State-sponsored inservice clinics for Arizona educators and administrators, the theme of the clinic attracted over 370 participants. Students and parents, as well as professional personnel, attended the two-day sessions. Program format included speeches, panel discussions, and the formation of task force groups to further identify problems of women and minorities and to suggest possible educational solutions to the problems. The presentations emphasized women in the working world, problems of working with low income groups, the role of career education, affirmative action programs, and State legislation. The objectives of the project and their fulfillment were as follows: at the end of the clinics (1) 65% of the participants did possess information about major Federal and State laws concerning employment of women and minority groups, (2) 75% of the participants were able to identify major problem areas which women encounter in becoming educated and/or employed, and (3) over 70% submitted a plan of action for their local districts for solving problems of women in occupational education. Participants recommended that funding for both regional and local clinics be continued. Appendixes include the clinic program and representative plans for local action. (RG)
