Career Socialization of Women in School Administration.
Marshall, Catherine
This paper describes research that attempted to discover and describe the socialization process in school administrative careers that support or hinder women's decision-making for a career in school administration. After a theoretical framework was set up, twenty-five successful women administrators were interviewed and the data were analyzed. One contribution of the research was a description of female career-role strain. Another contribution was the conceptualization of the progression in women's careers from culturally defined roles, through transition, to self-defined roles and delineation of the processes whereby women are denied equal access to informal socialization. The result was a model of career progression that emphasizes the importance of the transition period for women who aspire to or who fill higher positions in school administration. (Author/LD)
