A Guide for Vocational Education Sex Equity Personnel. Update.
Vetter, Louise; Richey, Marsha L.
This reference guide for sex equity coordinators identifies the requirements of the Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act of 1984 for sex equity. An introduction discusses the purpose of the Perkins Act and personnel requirements regarding the elimination of sex discrimination and sex stereotyping. The next section identifies the requirements of the state plan, as they relate to the sex equity coordinator. The next eight sections are organized under the eight functions (or responsibilities) of the sex equity coordinator as identified in the Perkins Act, which requires the coordinator to: (1) administer the program of vocational education for single parents and homemakers and the sex equity program; (2) gather, analyze, and disseminate data; (3) review vocational education programs and submit recommendations; (4) submit to the State Board an assessment of the state's progress; (5) review proposed actions on grants, contracts, and the policies of the State Board; (6) develop recommendations for programs of information and outreach; (7) provide technical assistance; and (8) assist administrators, instructors, and counselors in implementing programs and activities. Each section includes examples of ways states are implementing the provisions. A discussion of organizing the sex equity effort follows. A section on resources concludes the guide. Appendixes describe how states are implementing sex equity and provide a list of state sex equity coordinators. (YLB)
