Report of the Public Hearings on the Status of Women in Education in Santa Clara County.
Santa Clara County Commission on the Status of Women, CA.
The report is the result of public hearings conducted in 1975, in Santa Clara County, California, to study the conditions which demonstrate sex discrimination or prejudice in educational institutions. The purposes of the hearings were to provide public awareness of specific instances of sex bias in education and to determine the extent to which such sex discrimination exists in the schools of Santa Clara County. The report is divided into four parts. Part I describes the history of federal and state legislation affecting sex discrimination in education. Part II provides a brief explanation of the efforts made by the hearing panel to involve the public in the examination of conditions relating to sex discrimination in the schools of the county. Part III is a synopsis of the testimony presented to the hearing panel and part IV is a series of recommendations made by the hearing panel to eliminate the conditions relating to sex discrimination in the schools. Also included are several charts depicting the wage differential between male and female educational personnel in the county. (Author/PM)
