Resource Linkages for Sex Equity. The Potential for Linkages Between the Vocational Education Sex Equity Coordinator and Other Legally Appointed Equity Personnel.
National Advisory Council on Vocational Education, Washington, DC.
Several federal laws that address the issue of sex equity in education and employment do so in part by placing personnel in official and advisory positions at the state and local level to effect equity. In vocational education, Public Law 94-482 mandates vocational education sex equity personnel (in most states entitled "sex equity coordinators") to fulfill ten specific functions relating to creating and promoting sex equity in educational programs. Coordinators could carry out these mandates more effectively if they could form cooperative linkages with other personnel mandated by other federal laws. These personnel include coordinators under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973; members, especially women members, of local advisory councils on vocational education under Section 105 of Public Law 94-482; compliance officers under Office of Civil Rights Guidelines; state coordinators under the Career Education Incentive Act of 1977; assistance and training personnel under Title IV, and field officers of the Equal Opportunity Commission under Title VII, of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; planning and private Industry Council members under the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act Amendments of 1978; and affirmative action staff under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. These personnel, in turn, could benefit from the help of the sex equity coordinators. (KC)
