1. Rodriguez, Helen Sandoval. An Exploratory Study of the Perspectives of K-12 Latina School Administrators.

Degree: 2017, University of California – eScholarship, University of California

ABSTRACTAn Exploratory Study of the Perspectives of K-12 Public School Latina School Leaders in One California RegionbyHelen Rodriguez This dissertation utilized a qualitative research design to explore the perceptions of Latina K-12 educational leaders in a southern geographic region within California. Current trends among K-12 public schools in California reflect a disproportionate ratio of Latino(a) students to Latino(a) school administrators. This disparity creates a need for increased insight and understanding of cultural mores and customs typically associated with the ethnic make-up of the school population, which promotes the potential for successful administrative leadership. However, potential school administrators who are Latina are at particular risk to achieve a position of leadership within the public school setting for a variety of reasons. This research utilized interview data from 6 Latina leaders who were currently working as educational administrators, and had professional experience in schools from before their time as educational leaders. The participants were given pseudonyms that fit with the main themes in their interviews. The case descriptions presented the following from each participant: background, experiences with mentoring, leadership roles, views on female/male leadership, goals and challenges, views on Latina leaders, and networks. Potential trends in the perceptions of barriers that presented challenges to Latina school administrators from reaching positions of school leadership are discussed. Implications identify considerations for practice that will build capacity of Latina public school leadership that is reflective of the ethnic community they serve.

2. Alberto, Ligia Veronica. Mentoring Relationships as Social Capital in the Career Advancement of Latina School Administrators.

Degree: EdD Education Leadership, Management and Policy, Education Leadership, Management and Policy, 2018, Seton Hall University

This study examined the underrepresentation of women in leadership roles, specifically on the underrepresentation of Latina women holding leadership administrative positions in education. Using social capital as the theoretical framework, this study explored the role of mentoring relationships in the career advancement and promotions of Latina women. A narrative research design was selected to collect participants’ stories about their career advancement into school leadership positions. The narratives were collected through semi-structured face-to-face interviews. A total of 20 Latina school administrators were interviewed for 45 to 60 minutes. Upon completion of the interviews, the data was analyzed using narrative analysis. This study showed that mentoring relationships are essential to the career advancement of Latina school administrators. Current literature shows that Latina women have traditionally found mentors outside of their professional environments. Typically, these mentors include their mothers or other close family members (Méndez-Morse, 2004). However, all the women in this research study stated that they had formal or informal professional mentoring relationships. Participants reported stronger mentoring relationships with informal mentors. Most of the informal mentoring relationships were established through close work with their immediate supervisors. This study suggests that having informal mentors facilitated Latina women’s aspirations to become school leaders. In addition, the findings of this study suggest mentors were essential for Latina women attainment of leadership positions and therefore, counteract the pattern of underrepresentation of Latinas in such roles in New Jersey schools.
