Women's Discourses Within the Culture of the High School Principal. Edition No. 1

  • Published: January 2009

  • 156 Pages

This book examines the place of women in the culture
of the high school principal. It uses feminist
analysis as a critique of the positivist paradigm of
educational bureaucracy and the masculinist
discourse that forms the culture of the high school
principal then uses this culture as a microcosm of
the larger culture. Through semi-structured
interviews with five female high school principals
from northern Ohio, these women gave voice to their
discourses regarding their places in the culture of
the high school principal. Through an examination
of their discourses, it was possible for the author
to comment on expressions of resistance and
acceptance of the masculinized discourse of the
culture they inhabit. An interpretation of their
discourses can be used to make visible the link
between gender and power relations. This visibility
may further help the reader to re-evaluate processes
and situations and help negotiate multivoiced
differences and develop possible emancipatory
constructions.
