Technical Assistance Manual for Civil Rights in Vocational Education (First Edition).
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Vocational Education.
This manual is designed to aid secondary school administrators and other school personnel in avoiding illegal discrimination--while sustaining educational standards--through proper planning and managing of vocational education programs. Chapter 1 concerns civil rights compliance in vocational education by superintendents and local directors through use of this manual and with aid from staff of the State Division of Vocational Education, especially those designated as "civil rights coordinating staff." Organization, objectives, and use of the manual are outlined. Staff technical assistance functions are listed. Chapters 2 and 3 focus on students and staff, respectively, and preventing discrimination and promoting equity at each stage of the educational/staffing processes. Both are based on three basic standards: (1) detection, prevention, and elimination of original discrimination; (2) detection, prevention, and elimination of reverse discrimination; and (3) upholding of educational/employment standards. Furthermore, chapter 2 identifies ninety checkpoints/stages in the educational process, and chapter 3 identifies forty-seven checkpoints/stages in the staffing process at which discrimination should be avoided. Some checkpoints are required, others are suggested. Spaces are provided for indicating if these checkpoints are judged as being met (yes or no) as well as for indicating those types of suggested documentation it is felt could be provided. (YLB)
