Factors influencing occupational career mobility of women in public primary schools in Maranda division -Siaya county ,Kenya.
Women have remained under-represented m educational leadership globally Catalyst (201 0). The disproportionately low representation of women in the public primary school leadership is a problem that has persisted over time (Burke, 2009). This was demonstrated in a study of public primary schools in Illinois, Minnesota, and Wisconsin that was conducted in 1998-1999. Approximately 48% of primary school teachers in these three states are female, yet only 15.2% of them are head teachers (Broadbridge 1999). The 4th World Conference on Women (1995) called for governments worldwide to "create a gender sensitive education system in order to ensure full and equal participation of women in educational administration and policy and decision making" (Beijing Declaration and platform for Action [BPA), (1995) Chap. IV: Article 82).
