74 p. 

A grass-roots organization, Career Women in Education (CWE)) formed to increase the proportion of women administrators on Long Island. This booklet is about CWE-particularly how it organized to help women educators overcome discrimination--but it is also designed to be a how-to manual. Ideas are presented for starting a job-locating network, a talent bank, district fact folders, and workshops to help members prepare for applying for jobs; and for developing public relations and keeping in contact with local administrators. Other topics concern what administrators involved in hiring can do, what the law can do, and how women administrators can organize their own grass-roots organization. Useful devices are suggested that organizations can adopt to increase the opportunities for women in education. Appendixes identify documented practices of school districts that prevent women from securing administrative positions. Other items in the appendixes are a list of studies and reports prepared by CWE, a financial report of CWE, statewide and local plans of action, and useful models for communicating with school districts.
