Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This updated edition, now available in paperback, of Shakeshaft′s provocative account both summarizes and analyzes the history of women in administration and the current status of women in the field. Specifically, Shakeshaft finds that women′s history in school is different from men′s, and that the `typical′ woman school administrator varies in significant respects from her male counterpart. Barriers that have kept women out of school administration are also revealed and proven strategies for overcoming them are discussed.
