The Role of Women as Educational Leaders in the Public Schools.
Mosley, Charlotte Graff
The annotated bibliography describes the content of 71 documents treating the role of women as public school administrators. Of the documents, 16 discuss current trends in the employment of women as administrators, 28 concern the attitudes and perceptions of society concerning the presence of women in leadership positions in education, 13 review studies of the performance of women in administrative roles, and 14 analyze programs and procedures for increasing the representation of women in educational leadership. The compiler introduces the bibliography with a brief history of the role of women in education, describes the research effort prompting development of the bibliography, and defines critical terms. The bibliography concludes with a brief summary of the major implications of the literature reviewed and presents nine recommendations addressed to the educational establishment, to government agencies, and to women regarding policies for increasing the participation of women in educational leadership.
