Models of and for Women Aspiring to and in Vocational Education Administration. Final Report, September 1, 1979 through June 30, 1980.
Southern Illinois Univ., Carbondale.
A study was conducted to detail women's career paths in vocational education administration and to identify women administrators and potential administrators of vocational education programs in Illinois. A review of the literature and attendance at several professional meetings provided information about women's career paths in vocational education administration, and comparisons of the differences of their paths with men's. A questionnaire was prepared, field tested, and mailed to all female vocational directors and all female educators certified for vocational education administration and to a like sample of male vocational directors and vocational education-certified educators. Data obtained from a return of 80 percent of the questionnaires were summarized and compared with the data obtained from the literature search, resulting in a model (1) of and for women aspiring to and succeeding in vocational education administration, and (2) for promoting sex equity by members of boards of education and administrators involved in hiring vocational directors. A handbook for each of these groups was prepared based on the model. The handbooks will be used in future workshops to be conducted for women aspiring to vocational education administration positions. (KC)
