Women and Racial Minority Representation in School Administration.
This booklet presents findings of the fifth survey conducted by the American Association of School Administrators (AASA), which tracked the representation of women and racial minorities in school administration. Data were derived from a survey mailed to chief state school officers across the United States. Responses were received from 49 states and Washington, D.C. Findings indicate that women and racial minorities made slight gains in the superintendency since 1990. However, this increase was the least upward movement when compared with other administrative positions. Women and racial minorities also made modest gains in the assistant superintendency. The highest gains were made in the principalship. Overall, the increases in the representation of women were greater than the increases in the representation of racial minorities in school administration. Finally, representation of racial minorities was highest in those geographic regions where the racial groups are predominant in the population. Six charts, 10 tables, and a list of reporting states are included. (LMI)
