Status Report on Male and Female Students and Employees in Ohio Vocational Education, 1983-1985.
Whitney, Carol J.
While this report is in response to legislation which requires sex equity personnel to gather, analyze, and disseminate data on the status of men and women in vocational education, it also is a means of informing educators and members of the community about the particpation of males and females in vocational education. The report provides enrollment data by sex of students enrolled in the Ohio vocational education programs. The first chart presents the enrollment data by sex of students enrolled in the major vocational education service areas. Both the number and percentage of male and female students enrolled during 1983, 1984, and 1985 are provided. The accompanying narrative reports that students continue to choose courses and make career decisions based on sex-stereotyped expectations. The second chart contains the percentages and numbers of males and females in the following areas of vocational education employment: instructors and personnel in local administrative/supervisory, local program/support, and state administrative/supervisory positions. The narrative states that the number and percentage of females in local administrative/supervisory, local program/support, and state administrative/supervisory positions increased from 1984 to 1985. The next two charts present the male and female enrollment in associate degree programs and in long-term adult programs during 1983, 1984, and 1985. The report concludes with summaries of 58 minigrants ($600) funded by the Office of Sex Equity, Division of Vocational and Career Education, Ohio Department of Education, during the 1984-85 school year. These activities of school districts, joint vocational schools, and other agencies are in response to the division's goal of improving sex equity in vocational and technical education programs. (YLB)
