Grounding Research in Experience: A Case Study of Women Administrators.
Lynch, Kathleen Kelley
Data, accumulated over a 10-year period, support the development of a hypothesis about women's advancement in school administration. The hypothesis suggests that three critical factors affect women's advancement in educational administration: structural barriers, role compatibility, and organizational fit. Three primary data sources were utilized: (1) the researcher's personal experience; (2) the experiences of other women (21 women administrators at various levels of administration in 20 different school systems); and (3) literature related to educational administration and women's advancement within it. The hypothesis developed maintains that women can develop career strategy skills that can be used to maximize their career advancement. The awareness of critical factors can assist a female aspirant in analyzing her current situation and in deciding what career action she can take in pursuit of her goals. (21 references) (SI)
