Sex Equity and Vocational Education.
Weinheimer, Suzanne R.
This publication, compiled as a learning component for persons enrolled in a vocational education teacher education program, provides information on sex equity in vocational education and employment. The content is in nine sections. The first defines sex discrimination, bias, and stereotypes. The next section covers female participation in the work force and includes entry rates, earnings, and economic need. The third section compares the participation of women and men in vocational training programs. Federal laws pertaining to sex equity are briefly summarized in the fourth section, while the fifth compares the Education Amendments of 1972 with those of 1976. The next section presents the provisions of the Education Amendments of 1976 regarding the administration of state vocational education programs, state use of vocational education funds, and national vocation education programs. The recruitment of students into courses nontraditional to their sex is discussed in the seventh section. The last two brief sections, respectively, discuss the program planning process and provide a list of source materials. A teacher self-assessment form on sex equity and vocational education and a test on the publication's content are appended. (EM)
