The Oregon Story. Sex Equity in Educational Leadership.
Schmuck, Patricia A.; And Others
The Sex Equity in Educational Leadership (SEEL) Project was initiated to test several strategies for increasing the number of women in public school administration in Oregon. This book is a description of the various activities carried out and their results. The historical context of women's representation in school leadership is summarized, and SEEL strategy for change is described. That strategy includes efforts to change (1) individual attitudes, behaviors, and understandings; (2) organizational policies and practices; and (3) local school district hiring practices. The Oregon Network was SEEL's effort to conduct research on how various forces influence hiring patterns and practices. A chapter describes the research and service functions of the network, the findings of the research, and SEEL's advice to others who wish to replicate the network functions. Evaluation data are presented about the SEEL project's success, and the final chapter is written as a series of questions to help others translate the experiences and results in Oregon to other states and settings. The appendixes include copies of forms, several "how-to" descriptions, and other materials relevant to those attempting to achieve sex equity in educational leadership. (MLF)
