Sex Bias in School Leadership.
Clement, Jacqueline Parker
This study documents the pervasiveness of male dominance in educational leadership roles. Statistics demonstrate that only a very small number of women occupy positions in top-level administration. Legislation and regulations affecting women in higher education and at the elementary and secondary education levels are identified. The study concludes that progress to date in improving the status of women has been largely in two areas: (1) conditions of employment that deny women equal access to employment and its benefits in educational institutions, and (2) consciousness-raising to the extent that there is now some realization that a problem does exist. Considerations are offered for steps to change public policy to hasten the demise of institutionalized sex discrimination. Appendixes contain data on women as public school professional employees, and on federal laws and regulations concerning sex discrimination in educational institutions. A bibliography is included.
