|Abstract:||The purpose of this study was to obtain opinions of industrial/technology education program leaders at the collegiate level regarding the underrepresentation of minority faculty in industrial/ technology education. More specifically, the study solicited perceptions of program leaders on the impact of the educational reform movement relative to equity issues. Opinions were solicited to determine the extent the program leaders agreed with 10 indicators of equity, the importance of these indicators in administering their programs, and the present level of implementation.
Results of the study indicate that industrial/technology education program leaders agree that problems of underrepresentation exist. However the indicators of equity in higher education rate only as somewhat important on their agendas. Regarding implementation, of equity related policies and practices, the majority of programs gave their programs a negative rating. A major recommendation emerging from the study is the establishment of a national industrial/technology education advisory panel to review the history of minority participation in the field and offer an agenda for future action.
