Task Force on Education – 1967

GOALS:

1. To revise the systematic and deliberate mis-education with respect to sex roles which prevails in the American school system.

2. Enforcement of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 – and the inclusion of sex in Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

3. The elimination of restrictive quotas on the basis of sex, written or unwritten in colleges, universities, graduate and professional schools.

4. All schools should offer an identical curriculum for boys and girls. Neither men nor women should be discouraged from pursuing those professions which traditionally were restricted to the opposite sex.

5. All schools should provide a realistic education which includes instruction in contraceptive devices and family planning.

6. Sufficient funds should be made available so that self-supporting mothers, mothers on welfare and those whose income is essential to family survival can afford to complete their education without the triple burden of child-care, work and school.

7. A substantial number of high schools and universities should provide day care facilities to enable mothers of preschool children to complete their education.
