Women Getting Together and Getting Ahead. Sex Equity in Educational Leadership.
Smith, Mary Ann; And Others
The Sex Equity in Educational Leadership (SEEL) project in Oregon was designed to develop a model for achieving sex equity in school administration that could then be adopted by other states. This volume provides advice about the paths to administrative positions and how to survive and succeed in these positions. It also contains advice for successfully organizing in order to change hiring patterns, cope with negative attitudes, and provide encouragement and support for other women. After a brief history of the role of women in education, a quiz about why sex inequities exist in management is followed by answers and supporting summaries of current research. Part 2 of the publication contains chapters that deal with preparing and applying for, and surviving and succeeding in, administrative positions. Materials are often in the form of questions and guidelines. Descriptions of many of the issues facing women in administration today are followed by coping suggestions. Part 3 describes support groups for professional women and offers guidelines for organizing and running them smoothly. The appendixes include forms and suggestions for support groups arranged according to the kind of task being undertaken, such as monitoring school districts for administrative vacancies and producing a directory of qualified candidates.
