Advancing Women and Minorities in Educational Research: The Need for Training and Networking.
Jackson, Dorothy J.
This paper reports the findings of a study determining the feasibility of establishing a research training program for women and minorities. Focused on are the career characteristics of women and minority junior faculty at four year institutions in the mid-Atlantic region, their research training, experience, and need for training as well as critical characteristics of internship programs. A review of literature on internships reveals the underrepresentation of women and minorities in the field of educational research and the competitiveness of the field in which junior faculty hope to advance. It also points out that the scarcity of role models for women in education continues to enforce sex stereotypes. Data from a survey of internship programs provide evidence on the need for training and information about key components to be included in a research training program. A proposed research training model is outlined. (Author/EB)
