Women and Minorities in Administration. NAESP School Leadership Digest Series Number 11. ERIC/CEM Research Analysis Series, Number 13.
Literature on the role of women and minorities in school administration indicates that they both suffer from role stereotypes, although the stereotypes are somewhat different. Current literature on minority groups is limited almost entirely to discussion of blacks; the status of other racial minorities has been largely ignored. The role of blacks in administration has been severely limited by practices that exclude blacks from positions that involve supervision of white teachers or students. Women have been constrained by the belief that executive responsibilities conflict with the primary goal and responsibility of all women, which is to bear and raise children. Correcting the current situation will require the public schools to make an institutional commitment to the implementation of new hiring practices. Discrimination against minorities and women in school administration will cease only when sex and race are irrelevant in hiring and promotion. (Author/JG)
