Eliminating Sex Bias in Vocational Education. A Handbook for Community Groups.
Hitchens, Donna J.; Thomas, Ann G.
This handbook is designed to provide the background information necessary for individuals and community groups to become involved in local vocational education programs in order to help end sex bias, stereotyping, and discrimination in such programs. The first four chapters of the handbook develop the background of the problem, providing information on the importance and nature of sex bias problems in vocational education, how vocational education is structured in California, the laws concerning sex bias, and the barriers that inhibit the full participation of girls and women in vocational education opportunities. Chapter 5 develops a plan that community groups can use to have a positive impact on the vocational opportunities available to female students through local education programs. Appendixes provide checklists for the requirements of Title IX (Education Amendments 1972), Title II (Education Amendments 1976), the California Five-Year Plan, and for problem identification; a questionnaire for gathering information on local schools and school districts; and a resource list.
