The Feminization of Public School Teaching: 1870-1920.
Richardson, John G.; Hatcher, Brenda Wooden
Work and Occupations: An International Sociological Journal, v10 n1 p81-100 Feb 1983
Proposes that feminization of public school teaching was determined by (1) the process of state school system formation, increasing demands for economical public education; and (2) cultural restraints on women's work participation. Through regression and path analyses, the effects of these forces on the levels of female teachers is tested for 1870, 1880, 1890, and 1900. (Author/SK)
