Abstract : This report responds to your request that we review the Department of Education's Women's Educational Equity Act (WEEA) Program. First authorized by Public Law 93-380, the Education Amendments of 1974, this program awards grants and contracts to eligible recipients for interventions to (1) provide educational equity for women, (2) help educational institutions meet the requirements of title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibiting sex discrimination in all educational institutions receiving federal funds, and (3) provide educational equity for women and girls who suffer multiple discrimination based on sex and on race, ethnic origin, disability, or age. WEEA further authorized the Secretary of Education, through the Office of Educational Research and Improvement, to evaluate and disseminate, at low cost, materials and programs developed under this program.
