Educational Leadership


During the twentieth century, because of the increase in the number of students in colleges, universities, and secondary schools, the shift in the responsibility for students from the home to the school, and the present-day emphasis upon personnel work, there has come a steady increase in the number of deans for women students and the importance of their function in the public eye. New deanships have been established in many colleges, universities, and secondary schools; since 1919 twenty-four courses have been organized in different institutions for the purpose of training deans; and the membership of the National Association of Deans of Women has increased from 18 in 1903 to 1,015 in 1927.
