Why are women underrepresented in public school administration? An empirical test of promotion discrimination

Abstract

In this paper, promotions into school administration are considered as the joint occurrence of two sequential events, teacher preference for promotion and school board selection of administrators. Data from the national 1987/1988 Schools and Staffing Surveys of the National Center for Education Statistics are used to test the hypothesis that women face discrimination in promotions into school administration. Key results show that when proxy controls for teachers' desire for promotions and credentials are in place, men are more likely than women to be selected for promotion during the school year.
