THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN A SUPERVISOR’S GENDER AND JOB SATISFACTION OF FEMALE SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS
Despite womens’ progress in the workforce, gender differences still persist in the field of school psychology. Traditionally, school psychology has been a profession in which females work predominately at the practice level and males work predominately at the administrative level. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between a supervisor’s gender and the overall job satisfaction of female school psychology practitioners. Results revealed that female school psychology practitioners report the same global overall job satisfaction score regardless of the supervisor’s gender. The importance of gender in the realm of job satisfaction, limitations of the study, and directions for future research are discussed.
