The Participation of Women in Public School Administration.
Lesser, Philip
This presentation reports on a study of the participation of women in public school administrative positions for the St. Louis Metropolitan Area (1968-9 through 1975-6). While the numbers and percentages of women in administration generally increased, these findings need to be qualified. First, when the number of administrators increased, men increased more than women; and when administrators decreased, women decreased more than men. Second, most of the increase registered for women occurred in personnel/support positions (where men likewise increased, though to a lesser degree) rather than in positions of decision making and control (where women declined and men increased).
