(Women and) Educational Management.
Gold, Anne
An analysis of women's roles in education is presented. The paper addresses three basic themes about educational management and women: why women should go into educational management; what women bring to educational management; and how more women can be encouraged to go into educational management. The paper suggests that women should have equal access to power and resources, that women bring a different style of management to education--one that fosters relationships and growth--and that women who go into education should have a clear career plan that helps them to become school leaders. Two ways that more women can be led into education management entail encouraging them formally through good professional-development structures that include "women-friendly" management-development courses and developing a system that requires women to encourage each other more informally through networking. The paper suggests that education that is managed by women will be differently managed; their collaborative style will pay attention to teamwork, consensus, and empowerment, all of which reflect the educational values of many women teachers.
