Abstract: Discriminations based on gender, ethnicity, and sex-role stereotypes in education are common within bureaucratic school governance. This chapter discusses gender, ethnic, and salary differences in school administration. With the changing diverse population in the United States, it is important to continue to recruit and retain teachers and principals reflective of the population changes. These two job roles are the basis for recruitment for educational leadership programs not only for program enrollment but also for faculty recruitment. Salaries commensurate with the field and the cost of living are enticing factors in recruiting faculty to teach in higher education institutions. This study reflects many inequities that still exist along gender and ethnic lines. It is therefore important to equitably recruit and pay qualified educators into the professoriate to model and educate the future of public school students in America.
