    Sex Role Stereotyping in the Public Schools

    Terry N. Saario, Carol Nagy Jacklin, Carol Kehr Tittle
    The authors investigate sex role stereotyping in three major areas: elementary school basal readers, educational achievement tests, and differential auricular requirements for males and females. The section on basal readers documents the extent and kind of sex role stereotyping in the kindergarten to third grade textbooks of four major publishers. The section on educational testing raises the issue of sex bias in item content and language usage and shows the presence of sex role stereotyping in test batteries from major test publishing companies. The curriculum section discusses the presence and ramifications of different curriculum patterns for males and females.
