Women in Line Administration: A Longitudinal Study in One State, 1972-2002
Mertz, Norma T.

Responding to compelling evidence of gender inequity and a systematic campaign of political pressure to redress these inequities, Congress passed Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (20 U.S.C. 1681) prohibiting sex discrimination in all aspects of education in institutions receiving federal financial assistance. At the time Title IX was passed, men had dominated school administration since the Civil War, and the relative absence of women in the ranks of school administration was at odds with their dominance in the ranks of teachers, the position from which administrators are traditionally drawn. This article presents the results of a study of the movement of women in and into line administrative positions in one state since the passage of Title IX. The movement is presented in terms of position, year and type of district. (Contains 3 tables and 5 figures.)
