Equitunity in Vocational Education Administration: A Handbook for Administrators and Members of Boards of Education.
Parker, James C.; And Others
This handbook is intended to assist public school administrators and members of boards of education to deal with changed perceptions of women in vocational education administration. It consists of five main sections. Section 1, which covers barriers inhibiting the progress of women in administration, addresses the following trends: self-concept, career choice, career preparation, employment, and ambition. Section 2 describes such supports aiding the progress of women in administration as self-motives, credentials, university choice, training, social networks, and visibility. Section 3 contains a brief summary of literature and a selected bibliography. Section 4 contains a discussion of factors affecting women seeking administrative positions. These are interpersonal factors, career aspirations, advancement opportunities, role conflict, administrative capabilities, mobility, experience, training, recruitment practices, hiring practices, and conclusions of an Illinois study on sex equity in vocational education. Section 5 presents recommendations to eliminate the underrepresentation of women in vocational education administration. Questions designed to identify discriminatory practices and suggestions to aid women seeking administrative positions are provided. (A handbook for women on equitunity in vocational education administration is available separately through ERIC--see note.) (MN)
