Disparity in the Superintendency
Muñoz, Ava J.; Mills, Shirley J.; Pankake, Anita; Whaley, Sandra
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v7 n4 p269-278 2014
This paper examines the career aspirations of female and male central office administrators and their reasons for or against pursuing a superintendency, in the Texas, K-12 public school arena. Information unique to seeking and attaining superintendencies by these central office administrators will be presented, to assist with illuminating gender specific commonalities and differences, between all of the superintendent aspirants, involved in the study. This study provides insight, as to why gender disparity persists in the office of the superintendency, despite the availability of similarly, talented female and male central office administrators who aspire to gain the position of superintendent.
