Women Administrators in New York State Public Schools, 1968-1989.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Information Center on Education.
The status of women as administrators in New York State public schools is examined in this report, with a focus on the educational preparation of school administrators, the educational preparation of women as potential school administrators, and the employment patterns of school administrators. Statistics indicate the trend toward doctoral-level study as a criterion for employment as a principal or assistant principal. Women are increasingly receiving a greater percentage of all master's and doctor's degrees in educational administration. Since the mid-1970s, an increasing percentage of administrative positions are held by women, with the exception of the position of superintendent. However, men's chances for administrative employment in the public schools are slightly better than those for women. Seven statistical tables are included. (LMI)
