How to Erase Sex Discrimination in Vocational Education.
Beyea, Patricia; O'Kane, Geraldine
This guidebook contains information on the causes and remedies for sex discrimination in vocational education. The first of seven chapters, Vocational Education is a Big (and Sex Discriminatory) Business, reviews the current status of girls in vocational education across the country. Chapter 2 describes the bureaucratic structure of vocational education so that the reader can identify areas of investigation, sources of power, and leverage points for improving vocational education programming. The third chapter reviews three ways to gather facts about vocational education in a local area. Recent laws against sex discrimination in vocational education are reviewed in chapter 4. The fifth chapter focuses on organizing a campaign against sex discrimination in vocational education. Chapter 6 describes methods of establishing contacts with students, parents, and teachers and developing programs geared to provide an education forum for each. In the final chapter, suggestions are given concerning how to get media coverage. Appended material includes statistical information on women workers and on women in vocational education, a questionnaire for vocational education administrators, and a list of groups working for vocational education reform.
