Overview It isn't easy to find published research on the progress of women as educational leaders. Historically, classroom teaching positions have been overwhelmingly populated by women and minorities, while the top administrative positions were held by white males. Consequently, most of the research has focused on male leaders. Now, however, more and more women are reaching the top in educational administration. Women As Educational Leaders focuses on this important trend. Authors Hill and Ragland use candid interviews with outstanding and successful female educational leaders to create this timely guide for practitioners. They spotlight the personal and professional lives of 35 women who share stories of their journeys to the top of the ranks. The book pinpoints six common barriers most women encounter, including lack of political savvy, unfocused career positioning, and the long-standing male dominance of key leadership roles. The authors encourage readers to dump old myths, stereotypes, and baggage from the past to make way for a more open and positive mindset. Using information gleaned from the interviews, Hill and Ragland offer a series of strategies for professional growth and self-development, including goal setting, creating productive mentoring relationships, and using formal and informal structures for career advancement. They include a self-assessment instrument to help you determine your personal leadership competencies and create a more focused plan for your career as an administrative leader. Women As Educational Leaders is an in-depth look at what it takes to become successful as an educational leader. It provides guidelines, strategies, techniques, and commonsense advice that can be used immediately.
