Asian/Pacific American Men and Women Administrators Co-Existing in Educational Leadership. A Report. Office for Equity Education's Multicultural Education Resource Series.
Washington Association for Asian and Pacific American Education, Seattle.
This paper reports on two workshops held in 1980 and 1981, for the purpose of exploring the perceptions, feelings, and opinions of Asian and Pacific American (APA) educational administrators from the State of Washington. In the first workshop, which brought together 19 APA administrators, discussion focused on changes in roles, family life, interpersonal relations, and educational environment that have occurred for these individuals. At the second workshop, a smaller group of APA administrators reviewed some of the more pressing problems identified in the first meeting, including sex role stereotypes and the pressures that such stereotypes place on APA women administrators, and pressures to compromise one's ethnic identity. A number of alternatives were suggested to mitigate these problems and their consequences. Appended to this report are lists of the workshop participants and a summary of issues discussed. (GC)
