Promising Programs for Sex-Fair Vocational Education.
Butler, Matilda; And Others
This collection of program descriptions consists of case studies of 47 programs that contain promising approaches to sex-fair vocational education. The case studies (which represent programs in 39 states and the District of Columbia) describe programs that address the educational and job-skill training needs of such groups as displaced homemakers, pregnant teenagers and teenage parents, handicapped persons, minority women and men, vocational educators, administrators, and women and men interested in non-traditional occupations. Each of the case studies begins with a one-page summary (containing the project address, target audience, occupational area, description, outcomes, and funding), followed by brief setting and history sections. Outlined in the remainder of each program description are project objectives, characteristics, activities, materials, outcomes, staffing, future direction, and replication. A contact section provides the names and addresses of program representatives and, when possible, state sex equity coordinators. (MN)
