A faculty member is trying to locate the video segment Failing in
Fairness that aired on Dateline around 1994, I believe. I haven't had
any luck finding it available for purchase. Does anyone know other
vhs/dvd sources that address the issue of gender bias in the classroom,
especially as it relates to mathematics? Thanks in advance for your help.
******************************

I'm not sure if this title has been mentioned yet, but we recently
ordered a video entitled /Gender Equity in the Classroom:/

http://www.wgby.org/edu/gender/

It sounds as though it's a training tool rather than a social
examination of gender bias, and it doesn't seem that it addresses
mathematics specifically. But, in case it might be of interest...
