AbstractThe problem which this study dealt with was the noticeable lack of women in decision-making positions in our school systems. The purpose of the study was to gain a better understanding of why women teachers in Newfoundland occupy administrative positions in disproportionately fewer numbers than their male counterparts. -- The determinants of women teachers' career aspirations were considered under four categories; (a) Socializing Differences; (b) Family Responsibilities; (c) Educational Qualifications; and (d) Value Orientation. -- The data used in this study was collected by J. Bulcock et al in 1972 as a survey of women teachers in Newfoundland and Labrador. The data was collected from a ten per cent random probability sample of women teachers employed in the province at that time. The statistical analyses consisted of Pearsen Product moment correlations and regression analyses. -- The study found that the positive determinants of a woman teacher's desire for an administrative position were: mother's education, years of training, career commitment and professional involvement. The negative determinants were: marital status, number of children, and age.
