Gender Equity in Vocational Education. WEEA Digest.
McAuliffe, Anne, Ed.
This digest contains three articles on gender equity in vocational education, especially in relation to the provisions of the Vocational Education Act of 1976 and the Carl Perkins Act of 1984. "Gender Equity in Vocational Education" (Debra J. Robbin) describes interviews with students at a New England vocational school, in which they reported a generally equitable school environment, but some striking gender differences appeared in opinions about the roles of females and males in the workplace; "Vocational Education in the School Reform Movement" (Sundra Flansburg) highlights some of the equity issues raised in school reform discussions and their implications for vocational education; and "Shaping a New Decade: Women in Construction" (Susan Eisenberg) provides a perspective on the status of women in the building trades. An annotated list describes 11 publications on gender equity available from the Women's Educational Equity Act Publishing Center. (KC)
