Analyses of Perceptions of Curriculum Directors Regarding Gender Equity Inservice in Wisconsin, Massachusetts, and Texas.
Lad, Kaetlyn; Thompson, Jay C.; Walter, James K.
This study examines the perceptions of directors of curriculum and instruction in three regions of the United States: Massachusetts, Texas, and Wisconsin. The purpose was to determine to what extent an effort was made to provide inservice training for teachers, administrators, board members, and community members on issues of gender equity in curriculum offerings in K-12 public schools. A second purpose was to determine future needs to assure gender equity in the classroom. Fifty surveys were mailed to curriculum directors selected at random in the three states. The return rate for each state was 48 percent. The findings of the survey are examined and conclusions drawn about the quality of gender equity inservice education in place and what remains to be done. (EH)
