Transcript 3. Education Task Force Report Kay Whyburn, Antoinette dfOronzio, and Marjorie Randal filed 227 Bills of Particulars at the Texas Education Agency in Austin on July 9, deadline date for filing protests to this year's textbooks. Eighteen chapters of NOW in Texas participated in this action, with about five bills arriving too late to be filed. Numbers of Bills and Bill-writers were: NOW CHAPTER WRITERS, REVIEWERS BILLS COORDINATOR/S Austin 23 36 Barbara Duke Bay Area 28 49 Butler ft Randal Beaumont 3 3 Brazoria County 7 8 Terri Wicke Brazos County 3 9 Dallas 7 13 ^uth Thornton El Paso 2 10 Ft.

As to quality, we can only report that it was variable (about 10 skimpy Bills were not filed), but sometimes very high. In general, the Bills were good and will furnish very good evidence of sexism for the hearings at TEA on August 16, 17,. or 18. We still have not heard when this task force is scheduled for these hearings. Letters will be sent to each chapter participating as soon as we are able to make plans. Only persons who had Bills submitted to TEA on time are eligible to testify. We intend to mail a list of all such persons to each chapter in the above letters. Anyone else is welcome to come and observe. V/e plan as usual to have a meeting of testifiers in Austin the night before our Hearing, in order to assign publishers and books to our people and arrange our own schedule. We do our own timing of witnesses. Thanks to you all for your efforts for feminism in this important ar$a of the struggle. Bill writer/reviewers from Bay Area were: Judy Blanchard, Rema Lou Brown, Marilyn Burgess, Twiss Butler, Mary Buxton, Sonia Carmean, Rebecca Christman, Linda Eichblatt, Betty Finley, Frances Hicks, Parrish Hirasaki, Margaret Kemp,- Shirley McFaul, Mary Fae McKay, Nora Mertz, Dorothy Pearson, Jeannene Ramon, Marjorie Randal, Jeanne Saletan, Rebecca Saletan,. Judy Sekavec, Ann Smith, Margaret Snodgrass, Sally Stewart, Nellie Wegmann, and Betty Yancey. Marjorie Randal "It does little good to abolish medical school quotas for women students," says the group (Emma Willard Task Force on Education, Minneapolis, Minn.), "if kindergarteners laugh at the idea of a fgirl doctor1 and if female high school students interested in medicine are counseled into nurses1 training." "Study after study has exposed sex discrimination at all levels of our educational system," Senator Charles Percy of Illinois said in introducing into the Senate the Womenfs Equal Educational Opportunity Act. "Barriers that confront women on the educational ladder range from female stereotyping in grade school, to the exclusion of girls and women from classes and programs designed for men, to the relegation of women to low-paying, low-level positions in schools, colleges, and universities." —From"Womanfs Changing Place: A Look at Sexism"
