The Male/Female Salary Differential for School Administrators: Implications for Career Patterns and Placement of Women.
Pounder, Diana G.
Educational Administration Quarterly, v24 n1 p5-19 Feb 1988
Examines typical explanations for general male/female salary differentials and questions their relevance for educational administrators. Applies a model used to detect gender bias to a sample of elementary school principal salaries, revealing that gender accounts for a small but statistically significant portion of salary variance. This differential may be closely related to position segregation and professional experience profiles. (MLH)
