?This is a good resource for women aspiring to occupy administrative positions in education. Using a mixed methods approach, the author explores the challenges and the opportunities for women aspiring to executive leadership in the American schools.? Roger C. Shouse, PhD, Professor of Education, The Pennsylvania State University. As women become more and more prevalent in leadership roles, research regarding the barriers and opportunities to female advancement in educational leadership positions becomes more important. One obvious reason is to further understand what barriers exist, how prominent each barrier is in constraining women from entering school administration at different levels, and how these barriers differ based on demographic location. Moreover, the strategies used by women aspiring to administrative positions in education have much to teach other women seeking to obtain equal positions.I believe that we need to incorporate this issue into the preparation programs of school administrators.
