Women in Educational Leadership in the U.S.: Reflections of a 50 Year Veteran
Gupton, Sandra Lee
Forum on Public Policy Online, v2009 n2 2009
Little did I know when I first stepped into that ninth grade classroom as a very young, timid, first year teacher at Brooks County High School in Quitman, Georgia, that I'd still be plugging away in this profession almost 50 years later! The purpose of this paper is to provide a reflective perspective on the status of women in educational leadership in the United States and the progress they have made moving into and succeeding in the ranks of administrators and leaders since the mid 1900s. More specifically, the author will reflect on and review her own experiences and those of 150 female leaders in education in the 1990s who participated in a study at that time (1993) to discover the best advice and recommendations for prospective women leaders in the profession. The book, "Highly Successful Women Administrators: The Inside Stories of How They Got There" published in 1996, will be the primary source for the author's review and reflection.
