Equal Vocational Education. Final Report.
Lerner, Jane; And Others
The overall objective of the project was to develop a model adaptable throughout Texas that would enable school districts to increase and maintain female enrollment in vocational programs that had traditionally been dominated by males. In meeting this overall objective, other secondary objectives also had to be met. These included providing information to all the female students at the demonstration school about the educational and career opportunities available to them through vocational education; recruiting females into traditionally male vocational classes; providing the necessary support services to these females enrolled in these courses; informing teachers, parents, and the community in general about the availability of good jobs; and improving the image of vocational education so that students, parents, and teachers would see it as a viable alternative to traditional academic courses. This report discusses the project under four major categories: Developing the Recruitment Model, Assessing and Changing Attitudes, Relationship with Industry and Unions, and Summary and Recommendations. The appendix includes a pre- and posttest for students, Survey for School Personnel, and Telephone Survey for Parents and Community. (HD)
