Women and Education: The Status of Research and Development.
Butler, Matilda; Marzone, Jean
The Women's Educational Equity Communications Network (WEECN) has compiled information on elements concerning the status of research and development (R&D) as they pertain to women and education. The information resources cover all educational levels from preschool through reentry and continuing education. Support for R&D is discussed in the section on government and foundations support. A discussion of the second element, the status of the information base for R&D, follows. A third important element is the establishment of priorities for topics. Data are presented on topics frequently requested by users of information and on topics now being researched. The report recommends establishing priorities based on the discrepancy between topics well documented in the information base and topics requested by those concerned with women's educational equity. The kind and amount of R&D in the future partially depends on the extent to which women receive advanced degrees, obtain faculty positions, author and publish papers, and assume leadership roles within the profession. A discussion of these factors concludes the report. (Author/MLF)
