Sex Equity: Is It Feasible?
This guide presents a model and plan to expedite implementation of sex equity in vocational education through the elimination of sex stereotyping and sex bias. Aimed at vocational education administrators, the guide is organized into the four steps of the plan. Step 1 provides a rationale for the decision to implement a model sex equity program, including how to get help from administrators, state equity coordinator, local equity coordinator, instructors, and advisory committees. Step 2 explains why and how to conduct a needs assessment of instructional staff, students, and employers, while step 3 details the plan of action: training of school personnel, recruitment, and placement. Step 4 addresses evaluation of the sex equity program, including enrollment, completions, and job placement. Supplementary materials in the publication include survey forms, summary of vocational education legislation, key words, definitions, examples of language usage, guidelines for evaluating textbooks for sex bias, rating audiovisual aids, suggestions for maintaining sex equity in counseling, traditional and nontraditional vocational areas, affirmative action legislation, and sample news releases and public service announcements.
