The annual report reviews the origins, organization, activities, and future plans of the National Advisory Council on Women's Educational Programs during 1976. As described in chapter I, the Council was established by Congress in 1974 for the purpose of stimulating public policies and educational programs for women and girls. Chapter II outlines Council organization and functions in areas of review, evaluation, recommendation, and information dissemination. Chapter III describes Council activities related to the Womens Educational Equity Act, review of HEW's education division, vocational education, rural educational equity, sex discrimination, review of womens studies programs, legislative activities, and career education. Outreach activities of the Council include organizing regional hearings on educational inequity, soliciting ideas from womens' organizations, and cooperation with educational clearinghouses. These are described in chapter IV. Future plans of the Council are discussed in the concluding chapter. Plans must meet criteria of originality, feasibility, high impact, importance, and non-duplication of efforts already underway. Appendices include Council recommendations, program priorities, and a financial report. (Author/DB)
