System Constraints on Prospective Women Administrators.
Di Bella, Cecilia M.
This paper assesses the positive and negative impacts of the Women's Educational Equity Act of 1974 and discusses the potential of the act for promoting access and entry for prospective women administrators. It briefly reviews the purpose and intent of the women's equity legislation and offers a summary of projects funded to promote the advancement of women into educational leadership. Also discussed are some of the constraints that continue to confront prospective women administrators including sexism, the lack of turnover in administrative positions, and inherent deficiencies in the women's equity approach. The paper concludes that the federal government can take steps to remedy decreased opportunities for women if it so desires and directs. Also, commitment and action to resolve the constraints must be the shared responsibility of a variety of groups, individuals, and governmental agencies. (Author/LD)
