A School Principal's Guide to Incentives to Promote Educational Equity for Girls and Boys. Final Report.
To encourage educational equity for both sexes in elementary and secondary schools, this handbook provides materials for principals, other educators, and community members to use in assessing their progress toward achieving sex equity. The materials and information were gathered through nationwide contacts with those schools most likely to have developed systematic programs promoting sex equity. Each of the guidebook's five chapters examines a different aspect of sex equity in education, including (1) the school's overall progress toward sex equity; (2) equity in staff development, teacher evaluation, and other personnel practices; (3) equal access to all school programs, especially in vocational and physical education; (4) equity in student guidance and counseling programs; and (5) elimination of sexism in curriculum and library materials and in classroom practices. In each chapter, the handbook first discusses policies in sex equity and the need for policy statements, before listing principals' activities that can serve as incentives for change in their schools. Each chapter then gives a checklist for judging the extent to which sex equity is institutionalized in the school, and concludes by presenting examples of assessment tools to use in measuring the school's progress toward sex equity.
