School-to-Work: Equitable Outcomes. Equity in Education Series.
Boland, Pat, Ed.
This booklet looks at a specific part of the diversity of students in school-to-work (STW) programs--gender in a multicultural context--to help educators, private industry, parents, and policy makers incorporate equity into their STW programs. After a brief overview of STW, the booklet outlines the School-to-Work Opportunities Act, explains the importance of school-to-work initiatives, and describes how gender-biased messages influence girls' and boys' career choices. Equitable techniques are presented that support school-to-work programs through each of their three components: work-based learning, school-based learning, and connecting activities. The booklet concludes with three sections--strategies, student equity-related competencies, and an equity checklist--that offer suggestions from equity specialists for planning and implementing STW programs that meet the needs of students. Appendixes include the following: 26 endnotes, a list of 29 readings and resources, and the names and addresses of 12 resource organizations. (YLB)
