- Publisher's Summary
- The Gender-Responsive School shows teachers, headteachers and school administrators how to spot the key spaces in school life where gender is important. It gives them tools to address gender biases by changing attitudes and ideas among staff and students. This Action Guide is full of activities that can be undertaken at either individual or group level. Based on trials with teachers in a wide range of countries with different cultures, educational systems and attitudes towards gender issues, it shows how important school is, especially at the post-primary stage, in forming expectations of girls and boys and ideas about gender roles. The Gender-Responsive School will be of practical value for all educational professionals who are concerned to promote gender equality.
