Abstract

This ex post facto comparative, non-experimental study investigated the demographics and characteristics of female secondary school administrative leaders (N = 1,068) to determine if the community types, individual characteristics, school leader characteristics, and school characteristics varied by regions and divisions in the United States. To determine the demographics and characteristics of female secondary school administrative leaders, survey data from the National Teacher and Principal Survey (NTPS) from the 2017-2018 school year published by the National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES) data were analyzed in this study. The results of this study indicate that there were statistically significant differences among female secondary school administrative leaders regarding community type, race, ethnicity, participation in an aspiring administrator program, experience as a department chair, highest degree earned, school size, and working at schools accessing Title 1 funding by regions and divisions in the United States.
