The trends which are evident in the representation of women and minorities in school administration, and the barriers which these groups face in obtaining administrative positions are the subjects of this report. Following an introductory section, section II discusses trends in the representation of women and minorities in school administration. Section III describes the geographic locations and characteristics of districts headed by female and minority superintendents, and section IV examines the career paths of female and minority superintendents. The barriers and problems faced by female, minority, and minority female administrators are considered in section V. Section VI discusses strategies for the promotion of women and minorities in school administration, and a discussion of how affirmative action programs affect minority and female representation in school administration is contained in section VII. The last section presents recommendations for the institutions and organizations which have the power to block or make available opportunities for women and minorities. (CMG)
