The Effectiveness of Four Women Administration Advocacy Models.
Smith, Martha L.; And Others
Since the number of women in public school administration has continued to decline nationwide, the authors sought to assess the effectiveness of four current models of women administration advocacy efforts. Loosely coupled under Project AWARE (Assisting Women to Advance through Research and Encouragement), the four models are sponsored and coordinated through the American Association of School Administrators and are funded by the Ford Foundation. The authors used a questionnaire and telephone interviews to gather data on the models' operations and effects. Model one, in New England, is an individual membership organization made up of six state units; model two is an internship program in North Carolina operated by a university women's center; model three provides training of individuals selected from state offices in the Southwest by a regional educational laboratory; and model four is an information exchange and linkage system operated by a monitoring organization in the South. The authors point out that the assessment data are too preliminary for a summative evaluation. However, they feel that there are indicators of success for each model. A copy of the questionnaire is appended. (Author/RW)
