Infographic: Gender of school leaders

In our last video infographic we took a look at the changing gender mix of teaching staff in Australian schools. Today, we are focusing on Principal and Deputy Principal roles.

In primary schools, 81 per cent of all teaching staff (FTE) are female; the figure is 59 per cent in secondary schools. What do you think the figure is for school leadership roles? Did the gender mix change between 2010 and 2013? Are more women moving into school leadership positions?
