Or look over the archived past discussions from 1996 through April 19, 1998 at http://www.edc.org/hypermail/edequity.
What Is Educational Equity?
Educational equity refers to an educational environment in which individuals can consider options and make choices based on their abilities and talents, not on the basis of stereotypes, biased expectations, or discrimination.
EDEQUITY is designed to encourage discussion between teachers and other educators, equity practitioners, advocates, parents, counselors, and others interested in equity. The participation of both women and men is welcomed.
What Do We Discuss?
EDEQUITY serves as a forum to discuss how to attain equity for males and females, and how gender equity can be a helpful construct for improving education for all. Topics for discussion include, but are not limited to, classroom interactions, curriculum development, school environment, education reform, violence prevention, math and science education, vocational and nontraditional education, school-to-work issues, community-based learning, and counseling. This list gives people an opportunity to ask questions and exchange information about teaching strategies, useful texts and films, innovative programs, current research, and funding sources.
Feel free to introduce yourself to the list, describing your work and goals.

This is appropriate when the contents of your message are likely to be of interest to a number of subscribers. However, if you are writing, for example, to request a copy of something another subscriber has mentioned, please send your request privately, not to EDEQUITY. Similarly, comments directed at a particular person -approval or disapproval- that do not further contribute to the discussion should be sent privately, for example, "Bravo!", "I totally disagree.", or "That's the way!".
Public appreciation statements ("I would like to commend the fine work of. . . ") are acceptable if related to educational equity and addressed to the audience of subscribers
Feel free to send information on job openings as long as the position has some connection to educational equity. The wish to reach more female candidates is not an adequate reason to post noneducational equity positions.
Educational and/or equity conference announcements are welcome on EDEQUITY. However, do not send registration forms, housing information, or schedules. Include contact persons for such information for those interested in finding out more.
You are encouraged to list resources (materials, organizations, references, etc.) to EDEQUITY. Please list as much information as possible about the resource (title, publisher, address, phone and fax numbers, etc.) and a brief description and/or opinion of the resource.
Feel free to list and discuss resources available from your organization if recently available or relevant to a current discussion on the list. Advertisements for professional services -particularly those unrelated to educational equity- are inappropriate. If you're not sure whether to post such a message, contact the list administrator at EDEQUITY-ADMIN@MAIL.EDC.ORG.
