Sex Discrimination in Education: A Study of Employment Practices Affecting Professional Personnel. Volume I: Study Report.
Kane, Roslyn D.
The current status of women employed in professional positions in educational institutions from preschool through the universities is reviewed to determine their relative employment status in comparison to men, and to identify discriminatory employment practices that have limited women's opportunities. Material for the study was gathered from a variety of sources ranging from scientific and historical studies to local reports from women's organizations. The most recent survey of research data available has been utilized; however wherever appropriate, such data have been compared to similar earlier data to highlight trends and to draw conclusions. Where hard data do not exist, issues are defined by reference to relevant articles, reports, laws, and court decisions. Chapters discuss the methodological approach; employment and salary; minority women; policymakers; hiring and promotion; discriminatory practices relating to fringe benefits; women's patterns of life and work; legislation, regulations, and executive orders; court cases; and recommendations. Footnotes are included at the end of each chapter and a bibliography of all reference material cited is in the appendix. (Author/MLF)
