Ortiz, Flora Ida
Urban Education, v35 n5 p557-66 Dec 2000
Studied a sample of 12 Hispanic American women seeking and being appointed to the superintendency. Demonstrated that the succession to the superintendency was controlled by school board members and former superintendents who held search committee membership. Hispanic women are hired when it is perceived that Hispanics were the source of school district unrest. (SLD)
