A comparative, quantitative research design was utilized with a Pearson χ² test statistic. Procedures for the study included gathering the gender of all public school principals in the state of Texas by utilizing a TEA data bank. The 2006 AEIS report generated information regarding campus size, campus level, and campus rating for every school in the state of Texas. Results indicated that a significant relationship exists between each of the variables tested. The prevalence of gender at particular school campuses has continued, as gender was found to be significantly related to campus size, campus rating, and campus level. Discussion presented is related to hiring practices and future research.
