Power Factors that Define Gender Inequity within the Missouri Public School Superintendency
Alexander, Kristina; Grispino, Frank D.; Messner, Phillip E.
Journal of Women in Educational Leadership, v2 n3 p181-191 Jul 2004
Although women have access to the superintendency power position, evidence has shown that women have not been able to consistently break the glass ceiling. A review of related literature failed to identify specific and practical employment factors that must be resolved or overcome if women are to reach power parity in Missouri. This study was undertaken to identify those variables that best define negotiating and access power barriers for Missouri women superintendents. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
