Meier, Kenneth John and Wilkins, Vicky M. 2002. Gender Differences in Agency Head Salaries: The Case of Public Education. Public Administration Review 62 (4) , pp. 405-411. 10.1111/0033-3352.00194

Abstract

This study demonstrates a quantitative approach to assessing gender discrimination in public salaries at the individual level. Using data from more than 1,000 school districts in Texas over a period of four years, the results show that gender differences in superintendents' salaries are subtle rather than systematic. Female superintendents who replace male superintendents receive lower compensation. Local district wealth also interacts with gender to affect salaries.
