  • First Things First: Writing Strategies

    • Authors: Marilyn Grady
      Abstract: Writing and editing are symbiotic processes. My earliest editing experiences were invested in my own manuscripts. Writing, rewriting, and refining have been constant aspects of my academic career. My editing skills "ramped up" during the phase of my professional career that required the editing of nine pathophysiology course books each year for three years. The background that enabled me to edit my own work and the pathophysiology texts was a strong foundation in grammar and spelling. Reading has been a steady influence on my editing skills as well. Reading is a vocabulary builder as well as a constant "styles of writing" lesson. (Steve Martin's [2010] An Object of Beauty is an example of a "styles of writing" lesson.) In my work as a professor, 65 of my doctoral students have completed the writing of their dissertations and graduated. Additionally, I serve on the doctoral supervisory committees of many other students. These experiences call on my editing skills and provide an opportunity to oversee research design and methods and extend my knowledge in the field of educational leadership. As a professor I have written extensively since I live in the land of "publish or perish." Because I have had a significant number of refereed journal articles published, I have experienced the comments, criticism, and recommendations of a number of editors and reviewers. The books I have written, alone or in collaboration with others, have expanded my writing skills. The comments of editors and reviewers provided by the book publishers have honed my writing and editing skills as well. These experiences have enriched my work as the editor of the Journal of Women in Educational Leadership (JWEL). My work as the editor of JWEL has provided an opportunity to review the work of a wide range of scholars in the field of educational leadership. The work of these individuals provides a significant, focused body of work on the topic of women in educational leadership. Thank you to all who have made my work as founding editor of JWEL possible.

  • Voices of Women in the Field--Obtaining a Higher Education Faculty
           Position: The Critical Role Mentoring Plays for Females

    • Authors: Vicki Van Tuyle et al.
      Abstract: Mentoring female doctoral candidates to obtain access to positions in higher education has not been widely researched. Women often aspire to the professorship only to find limited access to these positions. Even though a doctoral degree is a vehicle for acquiring a career in higher education, the transfom1ation from doctoral candidate to assistant professor is usually a long and winding road. While devoting hours to extensive course work, conducting research studies, and writing and rewriting dissertation drafts, it is not uncommon for graduate students to begin to imagine themselves as professors like the professors they have worked with in higher education. A commentary on mentoring at the graduate level focusing on literacy education by Cobb, Fox, Many, Matthews, McGrail, & Sachs (2006) found that while engaged in graduate programs, doctoral students began thinking about their "changing identities or roles" (p. 374). When thinking about their changing roles, students recognized the additional help they would need "navigating within the culture of the university" (p. 375). The students often looked to their professors to mentor them and show them the way. This commentary asserts that to get the most out of their graduate experience, students need to be "proactive in seeking mentoring experiences" (p. 376).

  • The Barrier Within: Relational Aggression Among Women

    • Authors: Barbara L. Brock
      Abstract: "There has been a lot of rhetoric on women mentoring other women. However, the so-called solidarity of women does not exist. Some women are engaged in competition and sabotage."—A high school principalRelational aggression among women is alive and well among women in educational leadership. Women who assume leadership positions are sometimes targeted for acts of sabotage perpetrated by female peers and subordinates (Brock, 2008). A review of the literature supports the notion that relational aggression among women is commonplace in other career fields as well (Barash, S. 2006; Briles, 2003; Chesler, 2001; Funke, 2000; Heim & Murphy, 2001; Mooney, 2005; Tanenbaum 2002). Relational aggression occurs among both genders, however, it has been found to be more prevalent in female relationships than in males (Underwood, 2004). According to Maguire in his book, Wicked, (1995), "Cross a man and you struggle, one of you wins, you adjust and go on—or you lie there dead. Cross a woman and the universe is changed once again, for cold anger requires an eternal vigilance in all matters of slight and offense." Although the numnber of women who engage in relational aggresion is small the damage they inflict is great. Reputations are ruined; careers are derailed; victims suffer devastating and enduring emotional pain (Brock 2008). On a larger scale the perception of women's ability to lead and engage in productive teamwork is diminished. Gender slereotypes and corresponding inequities are unwittingly perpetuated. The intent of this paper is to raise awareness about the destructive phenomenon of women's retational aggression and encourage women leaders to be proactive in addressing the problem. A variety of terms are used to decribe acts of relational aggression including indirect aggression, covert bullying, horizontal violence, sabotage, and the queen bee syndrome. Although th terms have slight variation in meaning, all of them describe a cluster of behaviors, such as gossip, rumors, betrayal, exclusion, and other forms of humiliation that are intended to damage reputation and/or block the social or career advancement of others. For the purpose of this paper, the term relational aggression, a term first coined in a 1995 study by Crick and Grotpeter, will be used.

  • In Their Own Words: Latina Success in Higher Education

    • Authors: Brent D. Cejda
      Abstract: Greater numbers of Latinas are participating in postsecondary education, however these gains have not resulted in increased graduation rates. This study examines the lived experiences of 36 Latina baccalaureate graduates to gain a deeper understanding of how they achieved this important educational goal.During the 1990s, analyses of data stressed that Latinos had the lowest postsecondary participation rate of any racial or ethnic group (Cardoza, 1991 ; Martinez-Thome, 1995). A decade later, there is evidence that although participation rates have increased, there are continued disparities in baccalaureate outcomes between Latino and Caucasian college students (President's Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans, 2003; Council of Economic Advisers, 2000; Fry, 2002; Vemez, & Mizell, 2001). Using data from the National Education Longitudinal Study of 1988, Fry (2004) found that, among those who entered the community college as "minimally qualified" for postsecondary education, 16% of Caucasians completed a bachelor's degree compared to only 7% of Latinos. Fry used the same database to indentify a 23% discrepancy in the baccalaureate completion rates of "qualified" Caucasian and Latino students enrolled in non-selective four-year institutions.

  • The Builders of the Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

    • Authors: Marilyn Grady
      Abstract: For eight years, a group of dedicated reviewers have served the Journal of Women in Educational Leadership (lWEL). Their knowledge of educational leadership, research design and methods, and women as leaders was essential to the review process. These individuals provided service to the journal as a professional courtesy. Their service, generosity, and professional contributions are acknowledged and appreciated as a backbone of lWEL. For eight years, individuals have contributed their research and scholarly manuscripts to the Journal of Women in Educational Leadership. Without these contributions there would be no journal. The trust these individuals placed in the journal made the publication of lWEL possible. Their research and scholarship as well as their trust in lWEL are acknowledged and appreciated. lWEL has had the distinction of being a "paper" journal in a time of diminishing paper journals. The success of a paper journal is linked to the number of subscriptions it attracts. To those who subscribed to lWEL, thank you. Interest in the lournal of Women in Educational Leadership is indicated by the number of individual subscriptions to the journal as well as the number of library subscriptions to the journal. Based on the number of libraries that access lWEL through WilsonWeb, there is great interest in the subjects of the manuscripts that appear in the journal. All of these elements are important components of the journal. The reviewers, authors, subscribers, and online users have all contributed to the success of the journal. These are the builders of the Journal of Women in Educational Leadership. The opportunity to serve as the founding editor of lWEL has been an opportunity to marvel at the amount of "invisible" work that sustains a journal. Thank you to each builder of the journal!

  • Building a Culture of Innovation: Breaking Down Silos

    • Authors: Dina Pacis et al.
      Abstract: Institutes of Higher Education (IHE) are divided into colleges and within colleges are departments. Most departments work with their faculty members and have little interaction with others outside their specialty area. This paper outlines the process taken in year one of a two-year journey that one large IHE department which consisted of five stand-alone programs: Educational Administration, School Psychology, School Counseling, Higher Education Administration, and Applied Behavior Analysis took to work toward building a culture of innovation, collaboration, mission, visioning, and scholarship which brought all faculty members together. The department had been working in silos, with no common mission or vision. As part of the process, a leadership team developed a plan to engage twenty-two faculty members across multiple disciplines to enhance student achievement. This paper is a description of the process.

  • Women in History -- Madame C. J. Walker 1867-1919

    • Authors: Germaine W. Huber
      Abstract: Madame C.J. Walker's name has been synonymous with black hair and hair care products and until I began to research her life for this report, I believed that this was her major claim to fame. I found I greatly underestimated the contributions to African American and American history this extraordinary woman made. "I am a woman who came from the cotton fields of the South. From there I was promoted to the washtub. From there I was promoted to the cook kitchen. And from there I promoted myself into the business of manufacturing hair goods and preparations ... I have built my own factory on my own ground.~' -Madam Walker, National Negro Business League Convention, July 1912W. E. B. Du Bois's obituary of her in the August 1919 issue of The Crisis stated, "It is given to few persons to transform a people in a generation. Yet this was done by the late Madam C. J. Walker."

  • Building Pathways: Nurturing a Female Generation of School Leaders in
           China

    • Authors: Lixia Qin et al.
      Abstract: International feminist perspectives recognize the continuing inequalities of power between men and women across all classes. In China’s male-dominant society, for example, women often have been inhibited from pursuing leadership positions. One particular reason that has been drawing increasing attention across the world is the lack of appropriate training and guidance in young women’s leadership. This paper probes in greater depth one of the most important, yet largely overlooked aspects in the educational leadership of China – women’s leadership roles in education and young women’s leadership preparation. Drawing from published data, literature, and the data collected by the authors, the paper provides an overview of women’ leadership roles in education and the barriers to young women’s leadership aspirations, highlights gaps in young females’ leadership preparation in China, and identifies the implications for future research and practice. By capturing these views, insights and knowledge, the paper explores the promise and potential of nurturing a new female generation of educational leaders. Although there are past studies focusing on women’s leadership in China, relatively little is known about Chinese women in education leadership especially their leadership development in education. This paper fills a gap in the literature and brings light to an overlooked aspect involving China’s school leader development.

  • Women in History: Virginia Roth – Innovative Educator

    • Authors: Barbara Shousha
      Abstract: “There has to be a better way.” In 1964, Virginia Roth, then known as Sr. Pacis principal at Ryan High School in Omaha, Nebraska, set out to devise a new system of education. Her goal, as expressed in her essay, “A Model for an Alternate High School” was to, “realize those objectives we defined as essential for education.” The “we” referred to the School Sisters of St. Francis, the religious order to which she belonged at that time. Roth described the period from 1964 to 1966 as a “two year experimentation program of brainstorming, trying new methods, committee work for the whole staff, and some brainwashing to define a school organization.” The resulting system of modular scheduling, individual advising, and independent study continued for two decades before the school closed. Over time, the innovations lost favor with the community and the Catholic hierarchy in Omaha. Roth left Ryan, but remained committed to the ideals and the practice of in 1973 and took her ideas to work for twelve years at another successful, progressive high school in Omaha. She was recognized as an educational expert in progressive education, and at the peak of her activity, spent a considerable amount of time traveling to conferences, teaching education courses and writing about education. In 1972, she was estimated, by Omaha World Herald reporter, Robert McMorris, to have traveled 30,000 miles to-and-from workshops in a six- month period. At conferences, she presented Ryan’s program to school administrators from across the country. The article noted, “Sister Roth’s proposals were for a school that would put into practice a proposition to which educators have always given lip service: students should be treated as individuals.” Roth’s vision for education was bold and progressive; and her ability to translate her ideas into operational practice was ahead of its time.

  • Surrendering to Gender in Education' Complacency and the Woman Leader

    • Authors: Kimberly L. Clark Ed. D. et al.
      Abstract: The purpose of our study was to better understand the role of gender performance for aspiring school leaders through a reflection of their journey through the administrative pipeline. The transformation of professional aspirations throughout and following the certification process and during employment was also analyzed. Also, the appealing factors of a nontraditional administrative preparation program were evaluated. Using heuristic qualitative methods, women graduates of and expedited certification for educational leadership program participated in focus groups and a select group returned for individual interviews. Coding was employed to analyze the data. Our participants entered into school leadership as a result of an external catalyst, a mentor, which inspired a process of self-empowerment that led to their pursuit of administrative certifications and positions. This process was cyclical. The nontraditional program and its appealing characteristics added to the realization of their current leadership positions. The recommendations we make in the areas of policy, research, and practice, each speak to a need for enhanced encouragement, by diverse means, of women school leaders at the national, state, and district levels.

  • Impediments to the Advancement of Women at Community Colleges

    • Authors: Teresa Yearout et al.
      Abstract: This study examined current women leaders’ perceptions of the impediments to advancement at the community college. The study was guided by research questions addressing perceptions of (a) personal or internal impediments to advancement; (b) organizational or structural impediments to advancement; and (c) organizational cultural impediments to advancement. Additionally, the current study focuses on the setting and size of the community college and how these factors affect women leaders’ perceptions of impediments to leadership advancement. Participants in the study included a nonrandom, purposive sample of senior female leaders at community college leaders at community colleges in the eleven-state region of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).One unexpected finding from the current study was the continuing existence of the perception of the “‘good ol’ boys’ network and culture of power” impediment to advancement of women leaders in community colleges. As a result of the passage of time and the advancement of women in business and political sectors as well as educational institutions, colleges would have expectantly progressed past the original “good ol’ boys” networks. In the second decade of the 21st century, women participating in the current study are still reporting the “‘good ol’ boys’ network and culture of power” as the strongest cultural impediment to advancement within their institutions. Based on the findings of this study, recommendations are made to support emerging female leaders as well as to assist search committees and leaders at community colleges.

  • Arts Education Funding

    • Authors: Annette M. Vargas
      Abstract: Student access to arts education, and the quality of such instruction in the nation’s public schools, continue to be of concern to policymakers, educators, and families. Specifically, research has focused on the questions: To what extent do students receive instruction in the arts' Under what conditions is the instruction provided' The passing of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was a significant move by the Senate, as they had not considered K-12 public education legislation on the Senate floor since 2001. Under this federal law, the arts are included as part of a “well-rounded education” requiring that the arts have equal billing with reading, math, science, and other disciplines in K-12 public education. This designation is an acknowledgement of the relevance of the arts in a complete education and means that the arts may be an eligible expenditure of funds for federal education programs (Davidson, B., Kahn, G., & Fitzsimons, I., 2015, p. 2). This research contributes to the discussion of public K-12 arts education funding and programming in the era of the ESSA.

  • Self-Efficacy of Female School Board Presidents

    • Authors: Vicki L. VanTuyle et al.
      Abstract: Women’s representation on school boards nearly equals that of males today. As a result women are ascending to the leadership role of school board president in greater numbers. This qualitative study of female school board presidents examined the phenomenon of being a female school board president. Eight female school board presidents from Illinois participated, responding to interview questions about their role, responsibilities, and relationships with regard to the position of board president. The response data were explored using narrative analysis. The theoretical framework for analysis was based on Bandura’s Self-Efficacy theory. Responses from the interviews were interpreted vis-à-vis themes aligned to three of Bandura’s sources of information for developing self-efficacy: 1) the ability to execute and produce results (Bandura, 1977); 2) triadic reciprocality considering personal factors, behavior, and environmental influences (Bandura, 1986); and 3) mastery experience, vicarious experience, and persuasion of others (Bandura, 1977). This research contributes to a portrait of female school board presidents’ self-efficacy. In addition, it serves as a reflective collection of female leadership experiences characterized by high levels of self-efficacy.

  • Voices of Women in the Field--I'm Glad No One Told Me . ...

    • Authors: Misty Schwartz
      Abstract: Prior to beginning my current position, I'm glad no one told me that many women find the academy unappealing, with a chilly environment that can be biased and hostile toward women. I'm glad no one told me that I may suffer from intellectual and social isolation that is brought about by the masculine principles of competition and individualism that often occur in institutions of higher education. I'm glad no one told me that I will have little guidance from my peers due to a lack of mentors and that I may be expected to compromise my personal values and beliefs to fit into the white male dominated academic culture. I'm glad no one told me that, as a woman, I will be less likely to pursue a tenure-track position and if I do, I will be more likely to leave before advancing through the review process. I'm glad no one told me that I would probably report lower satisfaction than white males on relationships with colleagues, professional development, and overall career experience. I'm glad no one told me about the barriers that I may face as a woman faculty member because I may not be in the position that I am in today. I love what I do and I believe I do it for the right reasons and NOW that I am here, I have the opportunity and the responsibility to DO something about these issues with women in higher education specifically related to the promotion and tenure process.

  • Recruiting and Retaining Women Faculty in Science and Engineering

    • Authors: Dorothy Brockopp et al.
      Abstract: The purpose of this project was to assess the perceived efficacy of university-based activities designed to improve the recruitment and retention of women in academic science and engineering (S&E). Numerous approaches to recruitment and retention have been described and implemented but little change occurs. An evaluation of suggested activities by 35 S&E women faculty was conducted using quantitative and qualitative methods. Eight of 25 activities were strongly recommended by participants as effective strategies related to recruitment and retention. Mentoring, as frequently operationalized, was not found to be effective. Several recommendations are offered to improve the system of mentoring.
