Women in Educational Administration in New England. Baseline Data Study.
Kelsey, Frances W.
Focusing on the positions of superintendent, assistant superintendent, and high school, junior high, and elementary school principals, this study attempted to determine the number of female school administrators in New England. Data were collected from school directories of state departments of education in each state. Directories for 1977-78 were used for Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont and for 1976-77 for Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. Statistics are presented by state and accompanied by a brief analysis. Results indicate that for the time periods indicated women constituted 1 percent of New England's superintendents, 5 percent of its assistant superintendents, 1 percent of its high school principals, 2 percent of the junior high school principals, and 20 percent of the elementary principals. Three states (Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont) had no female superintendents or high school principals. (JM)
