Strengthening Support & Recruitment of Women & Minorities to Positions in Education Administration. A Resource Manual.
National LEADership Network. Study Group on Women and Minorities.
Activities aimed at addressing the need for recruiting women and minorities in school administration are presented in this resource manual, which is a collective work of the Study Group on Women and Minorities sponsored by the National LEADership Network. Each section describes an interactive, adaptable activity that is aimed at policymakers and administrative staffs. The first activity focuses on how to obtain, use, and disseminate information to create a state demographic profile. The second activity aims to share information about several current recruitment programs and to help Leadership in Educational Administration Development (LEAD) directors plan for expanding recruitment efforts. Providing entry-level support is the purpose of the third activity, which is designed to create awareness and encourage the development of entry-level programs for women and minorities. The fourth activity examines the promotion of advancement opportunities for women and minorities: identifying barriers to advancement and determining strategies to overcome them, and valuing diversity in leadership styles. Activity 5 helps administrators create an action plan. Forty-three figures can be made into transparencies, and a list of resources accompanies each section. Appendices contain an article on access to the roles of school leadership, resolutions adopted by the National School Boards Association (NSBA) and American Association of School Administrators (AASA), LEAD Center directors/trainers resources, and training activity notes.
