Vocational Education Sex Equity Coordinators' Survey Results.
Hartman, Elizabeth A.; And Others
In 1978, the Joint Task Force on Sex Equity established by the National Advisory Council on Vocational Education and the National Advisory Council on Women's Educational Programs surveyed all State Directors of Vocational Education to determine whether the Sex Equity Coordinators were being appointed and were functioning as specified by the law. The Joint Task Force proposed to use the survey information to assist the states in complying with the new sex equity requirements. Of the 51 questionnaires sent to the states and the District of Columbia, 50 were returned. The survey requested information about the Sex Equity Coordinators' functions, backgrounds, positions in administrative structures of the state departments of education, and operating budgets. The findings indicated that most states had adequately complied with the law in establishing and funding the position of Sex Equity Coordinator. The Coordinators' access to high level administrators varied, but 66% had high or moderate access. The Coordinators' qualifications and their job descriptions generally appear to be congruent with the functions listed in Section 104.75 of the regulations. However, areas relative to Title IX appear not to have been accorded similar emphasis in the various job descriptions. (BM)
