Women in School Administration and Supervision: A New Leadership Dimension.
Young, Claudia K.
This paper examines the role of women in educational administration today and debunks several popular myths that attempt to justify the underrepresentation of women in administrative positions. Statistics from a number of studies are cited as evidence that the lack of female administrators is not due to a shortage of qualified and committed candidates. The author concludes that current educational administrators should support, stimulate, and encourage qualified women to pursue administrative careers, and she offers a list of suggested guidelines for the adoption of nondiscriminatory policies at the local, state, and national levels of elementary and secondary education, and in higher education. A bibliography of approximately 70 relevant publications is included, and the appendix contains a number of statistical tables that document the lack of women holding administrative positions in elementary and secondary education.
