Sex Discrimination in Schools: A Student Perspective. A Student Guide to Equal Rights: Part 1.
Wiegers, Nancy; And Others
This student guide dicusses the problem of sex discrimination: what it is, where it exists in schools, how it can affect the lives of males and females, and how Title IX can help end discriminatory practices. Written by a group of high school students, this document defines sex discrimination, and gives examples of sex discrimination, sex bias, and sex role stereotyping in the schools in such areas as course selection, guidance and counseling, and textbook development and selection. Problems of career choice are shown to be, in part, a result of sex role stereotyping in the schools. The special problems of young men and women in vocational schools and of minority women are discussed. (Author/RLV)
