Dear Prospective Participant:
My name is Eric Mooney, and I am a Doctoral Candidate in the Higher and Postsecondary Education Program, in the School of Education, at Argosy University-Inland Empire. I am writing to invite you to participate in my dissertation research, which aims to 1) identify the perceptions and experiences of unfair treatment and discrimination of lesbian and gay public school administrators working in K-12 settings. In addition to identifying perceptions and experiences this study also aims to 2) discover whether there were any significant differences in these perceptions.
I am looking for participants who 1) identify as gay or lesbian 2) are currently or have served as a K-12 administrator in California. I would like to thank ACSA for partnering with me on this study to help identify participants. Because we do not have accurate data, I encourage you not only to participate but also update your profile with ACSA as they would like to continue to extend support.
As a participant, you will be asked to answer 40 survey questions and six open-ended questions. It should take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete the survey.
If you are interested in participating in the study, you can do so by accessing the link below. There is no compensation, however your participation is greatly appreciated and will advance future endeavors to support of your colleagues and students.
Eric J. Mooney, Doctoral Candidate Argosy University-Inland Empire.
