Four years of sex integration at the United States Air Force Academy : problems and issues by Lois B DeFleur( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Admission of women to the service academies by Congress in 1976 constituted a mandated social change at the Air Force Academy. This social process was monitored over the four years of the first integrated class by a longitudinal study of beliefs, attitudes and expectations of the first women and their classmates. A carefully matched sample of men and women were tested concerning these issues, as were samples from preceding and following classes. The report portrays a comprehensive picture of the integration process with the associated problems and issues. Keywords: Sex integration; socialization; attitudes toward women; career expectations
Integrating women into previously all male Air Force units by Lois B DeFleur( Book )

2 editions published between 1980 and 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eight-five females and ninety males completed the six questionnaires which were administered at periodic intervals over a four year period to a matched sample (for academic and military backgrounds) of male and female cadets chosen from the first integrated class at the Air Force Academy. These data suggests that (1) socio-demographic backgrounds of female entering students differ from males to a larger degree at the Academy than at West Point, (2) belief systems of both male and female students change over time, however, the difference in belief systems between the sexes remain over time, (3) both sexes are strongly career oriented but female cadets do not anticipate as long-term careers in the Air Force as males and generally are not satisfied with their situations in the Air Force, (4) both sexes learn to adapt to the military environment and to endorse military values
Cadet Beliefs, Attitudes and Interactions During the Early Phases of Sex-Integration by Lois B DeFleur( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Attitudes, beliefs, and interactions of male and female cadets at the U.S. Air Force Academy during the first year of sex integration are discussed. Background for the integration process is given, including policy changes and implementation. A survey was undertaken of a match sample of men and women six months after the women entered the Academy. Some additional information was obtained from sample samples before and after the main survey. The focus of items was on daily activities, attitudes toward women in various roles, and reported interactions. Specific questions were about: squadron solidarity and pride; acceptance; understanding and fairness of officer supervision; attitudes toward women in general, admission of women to the academy, and women as military leaders; and informal interaction. Results show that women feel less accepted than males, and less understood, even though they felt supervisory officers were fair. Male students felt women didn't receive a fair share of assignments, but weren't sure that favoritism existed. They felt very uncomfortable with female cadets. Overall, after the early phases of integration cadet beliefs, attitudes, and interactions remained ambiguous and strongly oriented along traditional dimensions. Responses are presented in charts as appendices. (Mse)

Learning About the Labor Force Occupational Knowledge Among High School Males by Lois B DeFleur( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Occupational knowledge among high school males from urban and rural areas in eastern Washington was assessed. Over 300 students from a sample of 22 schools were interviewed about occupations present in their region and about job information they had received. Through the use of specially constructed indices (occupational knowledge score, status knowledge scores, salary ranking scores, and salary discrepancy scores), a variety of statistical comparisons were made. The findings indicated little increase in occupational knowledge during the high school years and almost no differences in occupational information possessed by youth from several social class levels. To a limited extent, rural subjects outperformed those from small towns or metropolitan areas of residence. However, occupational awareness did seem to be consistently related to success in school, as was indicated by higher grade point averages. In general, the findings indicated that the formal system of education had done little to insure that the students obtained an adequate understanding of the labor force. It was determined that further systematic studies of occupations should be provided contemporary youth, that the sources from which occupational understandings are drawn should be determined, and that alternative ways for improving the relationship between schools and the labor force must be found.

The Effects of Integrating Women into Previously All Male Air Force Units: A Longitudinal Study of the Air Force Academy's Integration Process( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This project is a continuation of the longitudinal study of sex-integration at the Air Force Academy. Extensive data files from male and female cadets have been developed and data is still being collected. A questionnaire was constructed which asked about problems of sex-integration attitudes toward career, marriage family as well as issues concerning masculine and feminine roles. An article was prepared and published in Youth and Society Dec. 1978. It discussed ambiguities, sex-linked differences and changes in cadet beliefs concerning squadron life, attitudes toward sex roles and interactions during six months of integration. Females did not believe they were accepted and males expressed more traditional orientations toward women's roles which affected their interaction with female cadets. The paper focused on career, marriage and family perceptions, and expectations. Data indicated that males preferred a traditional career, marriage and family, but about half were planning specifically for marriage and children and a limited Air Force Career. Others wanted to wait before marrying and planned on having dual-career marriages with carefully timed children and limited interruption of careers. (SDW)
