Role Perceptions of Female Faculty and Their Administrators in Post-Secondary Proprietary Schools. Vocational-Technical Education Research Report, Vol. 13, No. 4.
Long, Thomas E.; And Others
The findings reported and discussed in the document are part of a larger study concerning female vocational faculty members in several types of educational institutions. The third of four substudies, the research report deals with female faculty in randomly selected postsecondary proprietary schools. The study identifies the perceptions of female vocational faculty members in the three broad areas of dual-role conflict, career aspirations, and career expectations, and compares their perceptions with those of proprietary school directors in order to identify differences and similarities. Several important discrepancies were found and documented and important status components in vocational education were identified. Analysis of the findings suggests that neither administrators nor female faculty view female faculty as being equal to male faculty; among the many findings are these: over half the administrators and just under half of the female faculty surveyed agreed that, in their institutions, women are not as likely to achieve positions of leadership as are men. More than half the administrators feel, however, that women successfully compete with men at their institution, while more than half the female faculty disagreed. (Author/AJ)
