The Female High School Principal: Key Factors in Successful Career Advancement.
Porter-Gehrie, Cynthia
The purpose of this paper was to examine the problems of and demands on female administrators as they make the transition from the elementary to the secondary school principalship where more policy-setting is involved. Two case studies are presented of women principals making the transition within large city school systems. The subjects were observed for twelve full school days throughout the academic year as they conducted their daily business. After a detailed discussion of some of the obstacles they overcame, the paper concludes that a study of additional female principals over the whole school year may provide a context for interpreting the findings of normative research on larger samples of female managers.
