Differences Between Men and Women in Their Aspirations for Careers in Educational Administration.
Reynolds, Betty
This study looked at three areas of women's aspirations for careers in educational administration: the relative distribution of aspiration levels; the relationships to achievement orientation; and the relationship of self-role congruence to educational administration. Significant inequalities were found in the distribution of subjects based on sex, aspiration level, race, present position, educational plans, and expected career levels. There were more black women and white men with high career aspiration levels; fewer women at the level of principal or above; more plans for the doctorate among high career aspirants regardless of sex; and more women than men with low career expectations. Women in general had higher achievement orientation scores than did men; and women with high career aspirations scored higher than men with either high or low aspiration levels. Black men showed greater congruence toward administrative roles than did white men or black or white women. (Author/RLV)
