Gender Equity and the New Perkins Act: Implications for Vocational Educators.
Equity Issues, v5 n2 Sum 1999
This issue paper provides vocational educators with a comparison of the 1998 Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act regarding gender equity and the 1990 act of the same name. It includes a four-page chart that compares key gender equity provisions from the 1990 act with the 1998 act that are most critical to local school districts. In addition, it outlines implications for vocational educators as they develop their local plans to serve single parents, displaced homemakers, and individuals entering nontraditional training and employment. Finally, it discusses the programs and services offered throughout the past 8 years of funding from these acts. Student participation and outcomes, resources available, and materials developed are highlighted. (KC)
