Variables Associated with Low Incidence of Women in School Administration: Towards Empirical Understandings.
Krchniak, Stefan P.
This descriptive study reported personal and professional characteristics of a sample of women educators in Illinois who constitute the certificated pool from which new public school administrators are likely to be selected. Data were also gathered on the following variables generally associated with the low incidence of women administrators: aspiration level, position-seeking assertiveness, personal and situational constraints, discriminatory employment practices, university training and placement services, and individual beliefs and attitudes. The Illinois Teacher Service Record and a mailed questionnaire were used as data sources. Findings included low aspiration levels, perceived discrimination, low mobility, and inadequate job-information networks. (Author)
