The first section of this handbook defines terms and Federal regulations that deal with equal educational and employment opportunities, sex and racial discrimination, and affirmative action.

Included is a form for evaluating institutional sexism in organizational settings. The next section is devoted to a detailed checklist originally published by the Council on Interracial Books for Children for rating racism and sexism in schools. The handbook concludes with a policy statement adopted by the Rhode Island Board of Regents. (MK)
