The Role of a State Education Agency in Promoting the Advancement of Women in School Administration.
Cronin, Joseph M.; And Others
The Illinois State Board of Education has demonstrated a concern for improving the representation of women and minorities in educational administration. Within the agency, this concern takes the form of policy statements, the hiring of a committed staff, agency self-evaluation, equal employment opportunity training for agency managers, and the provision of growth opportunities for women and minorities. The board also provides leadership to local education agencies by encouraging legislation, promulgating appropriate regulations, issuing formal resolutions supporting equal employment opportunity activities, offering management seminars, promoting support networks, and developing and disseminating useful resources.
