Equity in Vocational Education: A Futures Agenda. Research and Development Series No. 213.
Campbell-Thrane, Lucille; Silvani-Lacey, Cindy
This publication contains the two keynote presentations from the National Equity Colloquium and a synthesis of papers on equity from multidisciplinary perpectives. In "The Future of Educational Equity" Shirley D. McCune focuses on three questions of importance in developing strategies to gain equity: (1) What is the current concept of educational equity and how may this need be modified? (2) What are trends in society and education that provide a context for seeking equity? and (3) What are tasks that must be accomplished to continue the search for educational equity? In "The Justice of Equity" Samuel D. Proctor discusses bases for belief in the dignity of persons; five stages of development--disintegration, survival and acculturation, alienation, lawsuits, and reintegration; and implications for education, including professionalism and vicariousness. The overview, "Equity and Vocational Education: Guidelines for the 1980s," synthesizes 17 papers about equity and vocational education from three major perspectives: selected academic disciplines, vocational education, and special interest group advocacy. It describes a concept of equity and examines the current status of equity in vocational education by focusing on eight commonly agreed upon problems and issues. Recommendations for the future are then explored. Brief summaries of the papers conclude the publication. (YLB)
