Women and School Administration
An issue of present personal and political concern in education is the under-representation of women in administrative positions within the public and separate school systems. Two usual explanations for this problem - discrimination against female applicants and failure of women to apply for such positions - are discussed. Particular reference is made to the implications of the "motivation to avoid success" syndrome and possible intervention programmes which might be implemented by school hoards or teachers' associations.
