Wisconsin Vocational Equity Leadership Cadre Support Project. Final Report. FY96.
Riley, Linda L.
A project provided technical assistance and support to the Wisconsin Vocational Equity Leadership Cadre to enable them to assist local districts in meeting the equity assurances in the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act of 1990. Approximately 80 members of the cadre, educators responsible for providing regional training for local school districts, and others received training designed to build participant skills and expand their knowledge of equity issues and how they affect school climate, students' career choices, vocational training, and preparation for work and family roles. Gender/Ethnic Expectations Student Achievement (GESA) training and an introduction to sexual orientation as an equity issue training were planned. Past technical assistance included the following activities: help with developing and presenting local workshops on equity issues, such as equity awareness; choosing, entering, and completing nontraditional vocational programs; equity issues in tech prep and youth apprenticeship; curriculum strategies and activities; and sexual harassment. The project supported, coordinated, and expanded the Equity Resource Center at the University of Wisconsin-Stout started in 1993. (The brief report is accompanied by these appendixes: cadre participant list; cadre meeting agendas, evaluations, and list of handouts; GESA training agenda; 1995-96 Equity Resource Center guide that identifies and describes 339 print and audiovisual resources available from the Center; websites and listservs; newsletters; and 1995-96 composite report summary with data in table format.)
