Women in Educational Leadership: An Open Letter to State Legislators. A Position Paper Prepared by the National Conference on Women in Educational Policy Making. IEL Report 4.
George Washington Univ., Washington, DC. Inst. for Educational Leadership.
This open letter suggests significant changes in the educational structure that state legislators can effect so that women will not be excluded from decision-making posts. Statistics are cited that indicate that a decreasing percentage of women hold positions in educational administration. In higher education, women hold an increasing percentage of instructorships but a decreasing percentage of full professorships. Policy changes are outlined in the areas of certification, school personnel, funding, curriculum, inservice training, appointment of women to policy-making boards, and state registries of educational personnel.
