Project BORN FREE. Case Summaries of the Educational Change Process in Project BORN FREE Institutions 1976-1977. Technical Report No. 7.
Keierleber, Dennis L.
BORN FREE is a project designed as a collaborative effort of university-based counseling psychologists and field-site educators to reduce career-related sex stereotyping in educational institutions and to broaden the range of career options for women and men. This summary of the early efforts of BORN FREE in 9 of those 14 institutions presents case studies which represent an analysis of two data sets: a systems analysis by teams of educators working in their own institutions and interviews conducted by the project change process evaluator. Each of the nine institutions has been analyzed within a context of (1) background, (2) initiation, (3) implementation, and (4) outcomes and continuation with reference to the project's second year. In the initiation phase, attention is focused on how and why individuals and institutions became involved with BORN FREE, and the kinds of expectations and backgrounds they brought to the project. The case summaries reflect the differential planning and progression in each institution. Emphasis has been placed on the dynamics of individual institutions in hopes that awareness of those experiences will be helpful to others seeking to bring about constructive changes in education.
