Equity & Diversity

Equity in education is a priority for all. To ensure that all students become aware of these opportunities and expectations, schools need to provide students with unbiased education with an equitable environment. The objective is to illuminate the connections in the education process and to show how equity and diversity can actually make the system work better for all. This page is dedicated to resources that educators can use to make positive change in their own districts to provide opportunities for all students!

Wisconsin's Model for Sex Equity in Career & Vocational Education


Education has many goals and objectives, among them to help make all young people aware of the opportunities and expectations that await them in the adult world. Limited opportunities and differential expectations created by sex bias and role stereotyping rob students of the freedom to choose and pursue an occupation that appeals to them and will allow them to support themselves and others. In addition, such bias and stereotyping produce counterproductive effects on the state's economy and quality of life.
