The Other Half of the Talent Bank: Women Administrators.
Neidig, Marilyn
This paper explores the reasons why few women are found in administrative positions in education. After exploring employment and promotion barriers to women under the categories of societal, economic, and power sharing, the paper recommends that women in education (1) receive more support in training programs; (2) become more visible by being elected to decision-making offices; (3) serve on selection committees for professional organizations and local boards of education; (4) receive announcements of job openings at the same time men do; (5) receive backup support from the system as beginning administrators; and (6) help to develop long-range goals for achieving women's equity in education.
