Equitunity in Vocational Education Administration: A Handbook for Women.
Parker, James C.; And Others
This handbook is designed to assist women in and aspiring to vocational education administration in planning for entry into and success in vocational education administration. It consists of five sections. Section 1 describes the following barriers inhibiting the progress of women in administration: self-concept, career choice, career preparation, employment, and ambition. In section 2 self-motives, credentials, university choice, training, social network, and visibility are discussed in terms of supports aiding the progress of women in administration. Section 3 contains a literature summary and selected bibliography. Section 4 contains a synthesis of an Illinois state survey on models of and for women aspiring to and in vocational education administration. Topics covered include interpersonal and support factors, hiring practices, professional organization, communication, career commitment, salary, mobility, financial support, teamwork skills, and legislation. Section 5 presents recommendations for women aspiring to and advancing in administration. These requirements involve personal factors (planning for the future, role conflict, seeking identification); skill development (academic credentials, defining skills, documenting experiences, training programs, personal improvement, assessing transferrable skills); and visibility. (A handbook for administrators and board of education members is available separately through ERIC--see note.) (MN)
