The New Women's Educational Equity Act: Still Alive and Making a Difference. PEER Policy Paper #3.
Cusick, Theresa; Wolfe, Leslie R.
Revisions made in the 1981 Women's Educational Equity Act when it was extended in 1984 are outlined in this report. An introduction provides background on the 1981 and 1984 acts and briefly recounts the Reagan administration's opposition to the law. Various aspects of the 1984 law are outlined in separate sections. A description of authority and funding is followed by a section-by-section analysis of changes in the bill: purpose; grant and contract authority; local assistance programs; challenge grants; national advisory Council on Women's Education programs; and reports, evaluation, and dissemination. A final section describes what citizens can do to insure continuation of the law. (LP)
