Summary

In the Fall of 1978, the American Association of School Administrators distributed a survey instrument to approximately 4,000 school district superintendents and school administrators nationwide. The instrument was designed to test these individuals' attitudes toward women as school district administrators. Two hundred of the individuals surveyed also received a questionnaire (the "SRA Opinion Survey for Men and Women") which elicited opinions about women as employees in any occupational field. Analysis of results from the "Women as School District Administrators" survey focused on: (1) perceived effectiveness of women functioning in a management environment; (2) traditional female specific barriers to full time employment; and (3) personality characteristics that are seen as important to success in a managerial role. The SRA focused primarily on opinions regarding employment characteristics of women, in terms of their work attitudes and habits, interest and motivation, temperament and aptitudes, knowledge and skills. The latter survey also examined attitudes of respondents about employer/organizational policies toward men and women. This paper describes the methodology of the survey and presents the results obtained. (GC)
