Shining Lonely Stars? Career Patterns of Rural Texas Female Administrators
Wallin, Dawn C.
Journal of Women in Educational Leadership, v3 n4 p255-272 Oct 2005
This paper stems from research that examined the impact of the rural context upon the career patterns of women educational administrators in rural public school districts in the state of Texas. The study examined two pertinent issues for women in rural education: (a) the nature of rural communities and its relationship to female career paths in educational administration, and (b) barriers and supports faced by female administrators in the rural context. The purpose of this paper will be to outline the findings of the study in relation to the emergent issues for rural female administrators.
