Hoeschler, Parki, Comp.
Five papers, three panels, and descriptions of six technical assistance workshops are presented from a national conference for sex equity coordinators and directors of vocational education for each state. The first section contains the five papers addressing the topics of vocational education's role in reindustrialization from one of five perspectives: historical, economic, planning, evaluation, and business. Papers focus on a history of working women, economic trends, critical issues in planning, developing criteria for sex equity programs, and economic/business recovery and education. A fact sheet following each paper summarizes major points. The second section includes three panel discussions expanding on two topics--planning and political perspectives. Titles of the first two are Implementing State Planning (4 presentations) and The Political Perspective on Reindustrialization (4 presentations). The third panel presents comments from the State Directors of Vocational Education. The third section presents descriptions of six technical assistance workshops (with information and materials used). Topics include mathematics as a basis of vocational education; promoting race and handicap equity; funding, implementing, and monitoring effective sex equity programs; survival strategies for postsecondary vocational education programs; political, social, and economic factors influencing progress of sex equity; and effective use of available state vocational education data. The agenda is appended. (YLB)
