The Educator's Role in Equal Rights.
Greenberg, Elinor; And Others
Two questions must be asked by educators when assessing their role: How should opportunity, access, and democratic intent be used to further the fullest development of each individual to the limits of his or her potential? How do our institutions, in particular, our schools, play a role in facilitating that development? These questions are especially relevant to the problem of equal rights for women in a society in which the number of women in the schools and in the work force is increasing. In the light of these trends, college education for women is becoming more of a necessity, and it is necessary to examine our institutional objectives in terms of their relevance to women. Adult education programs especially need to be examined since from 60 percent to 80 percent of the students in these classes are female. (DS)
