Maher, Sheila M.
This report identifies and reviews projects and strategies that have proved successful in eliminating sex bias in vocational education. The information is intended to facilitate the development of affirmative measures by the States to eliminate sex discrimination in vocational education programs and to aid them in complying with regulations of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. The 24 projects described are grouped into four categories according to major purpose: (1) To increase career awareness, (2) to recruit women into non-traditional vocational training, (3) to increase commitment and concern of education personnel through conferences, and/or (4) to develop materials for use by students, parents, and community. Some of the projects are in various stages of completion: Developing materials, evaluating project successes, and/or writing final reports. For each project a contact person, address, and telephone number are provided and the funding source is identified. General conclusions drawn from the analysis of the projects reviewed are presented, and four other lists of resources are included (with addresses and phone numbers): (1) Individuals and organizations, materials, projects, and studies.
