Women Administrators in New York State Public Schools, 1968-1991.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Information Center on Education.
This report presents information on the status of women as administrators in the New York public schools for the years 1968-91. Data obtained from the Education Department's information system are used to describe trends in the following areas: (1) the educational preparation of persons employed as school administrators; (2) the educational preparation of women as potential school administrators; and (3) the employment patterns of school administrators. The statistics indicate the trend toward doctoral study as a criterion for employment as principal or assistant principal; women are receiving a greater percentage of master's and doctor's degrees in educational administration; women have been making steady gains in the percentage of administrative positions held since the mid-1970s, with the exception of the superintendency. However, men continue to have a slight edge over women in finding a public school administrative position. Seven tables are included. (LMI)
