Created Equal: A Report on Gender Equity in Alaska Education -- Then and Now.
Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau.
A collaboration of the major public Alaska education entities commemorates two key milestones of gender equity in education: (1) the 25th anniversary of Title IX of the federal 1972 Education Amendments, that prohibits gender discrimination against students and employees of elementary, secondary, and postsecondary education institutions; and (2) the 15th anniversary of Chapter 18 of Alaska Statutes, prohibiting discrimination based on sex or race in public education in Alaska. This report, based on historical, legislative and newspaper archives, and current publications and discussions on gender equity in Alaska education, shows progress that has been made toward gender equity in the areas of athletics, mathematics and science education, vocational education, technology, and education administration. In some areas, such as athletics and non-traditional occupations, things are clearly better than a generation ago. In other areas such as mathematics and science, there has been little change. The report advocates that the state renew its commitment to gender equity by encouraging full participation in education to all of Alaska students. Sections of the paper include: (1) Introduction; (2) Legislation; (3) History; (4) Results; and (5) Status. A 31-item bibliography concludes the paper. (EH)
