This bibliography focuses on studies which relate discrimination in education to sex differences in the attainment of roles and rewards both in the educational system and in the larger society. The authors define discrimination in education as reduced access to the educational system, reduced mobility within the educational system, or reduced production of marketable skills by the educational system. This literature is reviewed in an extensive preface to the bibliography. The 1000 item bibliography itself contains references to published and unpublished materials which may be of use to persons interested in the problem of sex discrimination in education.
