Options and Decisions in Women's Educational Equity, 1988: A Report from the National Advisory Council on Women's Educational Programs.
National Advisory Council on Women's Educational Programs, Washington, DC.
This booklet describes results of a research study, undertaken by the National Advisory Council on Women's Educational Programs, to determine recent developments in achieving women's educational equity and possible future directions of this movement. Selected trends, achievements, and areas in which equity has not been achieved are identified. The report presents specific information on: (1) participation patterns in elementary, secondary, and higher education; (2) changes in women's expectations for their own education; (3) persistent achievement differences; (4) differences that indicate educational inequity; (5) opportunities for women in entrepreneurial and senior corporate positions; and (6) employment options. Problems in implementing educational equity are described, and tables and a 30-item bibliography are included. (JHP)
