Library Journal - Library JournalThe focus on educational equity in both curriculum and classroom activities began in the early 1970s. This ``comprehensive yet selective'' resources guide was developed to support classroom teachers' efforts to remove bias--whether due to sex, race, or disability--from the educational process. Following a brief discussion of the Women's Educational Equity Act, annotated lists of the resources are presented in 11 broad subject categories. The author of each subject category also gives a brief statement on the presentation of equity within each subject. The majority of the resources listed deal with equity for the sexes. There are brief biographies of the various compilers, which lends credibility to the volume. The author index is extensive; the subject index has broad categories which sometimes may be hard to follow.-- A.R. Huggins, Memphis State Univ. Libs.
