Supervising the Development and Presentation of a Pilot Program to Reduce Sex-Role Stereotyping in Dallas Public Schools.
Martin, Andrew; And Others
This paper describes a project to increase staff and student awareness of sex-role stereotyping and to decrease sexist practices of students and teachers. Workshops were held in one school as a pilot for the project and subsequently in seven other rather typical elementary schools in the Dallas (Texas) Independent School District. Prior to the workshops, all professional staff members who were to participate responded to an attitudinal questionnaire to determine their level of sex bias. The two to four hour workshops consisted of films, questionnaires, and small group activities aimed at uncovering sex-role stereotyping. Posttests indicated a significant decrease in sex bias. The behavioral goals of the program were to reduce the ratio of girls to boys involved in disciplinary procedures by 15 percent; to decrease the divergence between the grades of boys and girls by 15 percent; to raise the level of integration of boys and girls into physical education programs by 10 percent; and to raise the number of boys participating in choral programs by 5 percent.
