Brenner, Patricia, Ed.
This volume consists of eight papers presented at a conference focusing on the ways in which the educational system influences sex equity and how the two are related to occupational stereotyping. Discussed in the first two papers are sex equity in vocational education and sex equity in education. Enrollment and staffing patterns in vocational education are examined. Covered next are the effects of school curriculum on young women. In the next paper the long-run labor market effects of vocational education on young women are analyzed. Following a paper on the roles of high school training and vocational stereotyping as means of socioeconomic placement, a paper is presented on the impact of vocational education in secondary schools on young women and young men. Described in the final paper is the American Institutes for Research study of sex equity in vocational education that deals with the efforts of states and local education agencies. The conference agenda and a list of conference participants are appended. (MN)
