Moving Women into Educational Administration.
Kaye, Bernard W.
Minnesota and national employment statistics show that there is a significant imbalance between men and women in administrative positions. Causes of this condition are attributed to stereotyped role definitions learned by males and females very early in life, leading to lower job aspirations and the acquiring of minimal professional or vocational skills among females. Since only 2 percent of all the professors of educational administration are women, this might cause many to come to the conclusion that the "know-how" is with men and it is for men. Sexual stereotyping and the rigid role definition of both females and males is harmful to both sexes. Specific suggestions to help move women into educational administration are presented and some highlights of women attaining entrance into traditionally male-dominated fields are excerpted from the media.
