1981-82 Gender Equity Report: Bakersfield College.
This summary of gender equity activities at Bakersfield College highlights six areas of vocational education, identifying courses that have more than 80% of one sex enrolled and examining changes in enrollments between 1980 and 1982. Introductory materials outline the purpose of gender equity activities in overcoming sex bias, stereotyping, and discrimination; provide national statistics that point to the need for expanded vocational opportunities for women; and illustrate the role of gender equity "bookkeeping" in observing changes in enrollment patterns over time. The next section identifies the six vocational education areas examined (i.e., agriculture, business, family/consumer education, health careers, industrial education, and public service) and outlines changes between 1980 and 1982 in the number of instructors, the number of classes offered, and student enrollments. The following section provides a breakdown of changes in the number of classes offered, in the number of male and female instructors, and in male and female enrollments by department. Then, tables are provided listing majors in which males and females each comprise at least 20% of the enrollments (N=106), those in which enrollments are more than 80% male (N=83), and those in which enrollments are more than 80% female (N=71). Finally, an enrollment summary is presented for each of the six vocational areas, including detailed data on enrollments by course within department. (HB)
