Will the Woman Administrator Make a Difference?
Sizemore, Barbara A.
Although many studies have shown women administrators to be as able in positions of leadership as men, women are found less and less in public school administration. Many reasons are given to account for this situation -- largely myths grounded in a value system operationalized through the economic institutions. Albeit, larger numbers of women than ever are present in the work force both because of the continuous influx of married women and a rise in the number of female heads of households. Women should be more aggressive in pursuing their rights to fill administrative positions for which their education and experience fit them. They should bring to those jobs the sensitivity necessary for effective human and personal relations and should design and implement governance models that give every role incumbent some input into decisionmaking.
