Wallin, Dawn C.
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v51 n2 p135-154 Sum 2005
This article stems from research that examined the effect of the rural context on the career patterns of female administrators in rural public school divisions in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada, and in the state of Texas, United States. These two studies examined (a) the nature of rural communities and its relationship to women's career paths in educational administration, and (b) barriers and supports faced by female administrators. The purpose of this article is to outline the findings of the study in relation to emergent issues for administration by women in rural areas.
