Transcript TASK FORCE REPORTS Education A copy of Title IX of the 1972 Education Act will be mailed to School Board Presidents and Texas State Teacher Association Presidents in Harris County, along with a cover letter discussing this law and the Text Book Selection Committee considerations concerning sexism in text books. A similar mailing is also being prepared to Feminists in all 22 Texas Education Agency Region Areas including a summary evaluating sexism in text books available for adoption by school districts, as an aid in their contact with local districts. Bills of Particulars and testimony given in Austin in September challenging sexism in text books are being evaluated in order to construct a review form for future text book screening activities. This task force is in need of a new Chairperson and welcomes new members. Call Mary Buxton, 333-3872, is you wish to volunteer in either capacity. Employment Correspondance is in progress with Baylor College of Medicine's Personnel Director concerning Baylor's policy of not permitting pregnant women to apply sick leave to childbirth hospitalization. This is an area affecting a large number of women where employers are extremely reluctant to abide by EEOC Sex Discrimination Guidelines, choosing instead to hide behind the vagueness now present in Executive Order 11246 acininistered by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance. Good news is that the Department of Labor has now moved to bring the OFCC Guidelines into compliance with those of the EEOC. Note: A new task force has been in action for some time with no formal designation (obscurity is sometimes the best operating procedure); however, a title has now been given to this effort: Task Force on NASA Oversight. Interested parties should contact Chris Kraft for further instructions.
