Equal Is Better: A Voc Ed Guide to Sex Fairness Resources and the Law. Vocational Education Development Series No. 8.
L'Angelle, David, Comp.; Williams, Sarah, Comp.
Intended to serve as a guide to selected current resources promoting sex equity in vocational education and to the legal regulations which mandate equitable programs, this reference guide is organized into two major sections: Sex Fairness Resources and The Law. Sex Fairness Resources divides the resources listed into sections that reflect six aspects of vocational programs: administrative resources; curriculum and classroom materials; resources for inservice/preservice; guidance; community members; and references. Within each section, print and mixed media materials are identified alphabetically by title, one reference to a page, and include a description of what the resource contains, how it could be used, the developer's name and address, price, and where to obtain a copy of the document. Where resources can be used in more than one aspect of a program, they are listed in more than one section. ERIC document numbers are included where appropriate. Part II, The Law, briefly summarizes two major pieces of legislation designed to overcome sex bias and stereotyping, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and Title II of the Education Amendments of 1976. Cross references are provided to the resources described in Part I according to their applicability to the laws. A final section contains capsule descriptions of other laws that affect sex equity and employment. A title index is included. (MEK)
