For decades, female teachers, coaches, administrators, and other school related jobs have experienced wage discrimination, including at Palo Alto High School - a well known, wealthy, and academically rigorous high school. There is a problem with the wage gap between men and women in the Palo Alto Unified School District (PAUSD). While women often have the same jobs as men and work just as hard, women earn much less than men or face the glass ceiling, unable to advance to leadership positions. This research project looks deeper into where this issue derived from, and if possible, look for solutions.
