A Guide to Developing Educational Leadership Potential.
Hatch, Elizabeth; Foley, Robert
This document, based on the experiences of the authors in five Iowa school districts, describes a program for encouraging women and other minorities to become school administrators. Chapter 1 discusses promoting the awareness that discrimination is a significant problem. Methods described are use of a sponsorship program for informal contact between administrators and staff members, and an internship program for exploring interest and potential in the area of administration. Chapter 2 presents behavioral studies on specific cognitive and skill-building components and defines power, influence, responsibility, and authority as they pertain to decision-making. A final chapter discusses experiences of the authors while implementing the program in districts of various sizes and ethnic compositions. Included is a copy of a needs assessment survey and a bibliography covering women in administration titles from January, 1977-June, 1979. (Author/LD)
