Strategies to Eliminate Sex Stereotyping and Sex Bias: An Administrator's Manual.
Rice, Eric; Etheridge, Rose
Part of a series devoted to identifying and evaluating strategies which vocational education administrators and instructors can use at the secondary student, teacher, or administrator level to eliminate sex stereotyping and sex bias in vocational education programs, this manual provides information to aid administrators in developing and implementing such programs. Divided into four sections, it contains material to meet administrator needs which were identified by a needs assessment survey. The first section includes suggested strategies for State Education Agencies' assistance to Local Education Agencies (LEA), programmatic strategies for the LEA to use on their own, and a list of program activities from which local vocational administrators can choose. To aid in designing program evaluations, the second section offers an introduction to evaluation methods and provides a checklist of evaluation questions. The next section is composed of four concept papers to give administrators basic information on the topics of (1) stereotypes, discrimination, and sexism; (2) sex stereotyping in school; (3) sex stereotyping, bias, and discrimination in the work force; and (4) sex discrimination and the law. In the final section, a two-to-three day workshop is described that combines general data, legal information, and solution activities for instructors, counselors, and administrators. A chart detailing the workshop's objectives, activities, and evaluation methods is included, followed by the materials (checklists, tests, information, and data analysis) needed to address each objective.
