Gender Issues in School: Dig Deep for Root Causes
School is the only place where we start to learn about life, and the basic things about everything. We go to the school with the other girls and boys.Yet after sometime, somewhere near the adolescent age, the girls become few in number.Also somewhere during the 1980s and 1990s, the ration of boy to girl in the class was 3:1 or something like that.The educators need to understand the grave gender issues in school. Gender equality is something we all should gain some knowledge about.
Gender equality is that point or state where the resources or the chances come to the genders equally regardless of their genders. They should be given equal importance in several decision making matters. They should be equally valued for their behaviors and professions.
Gender equality is something every school thinks of implementing and its somehow the most important goal but the statistics show otherwise. The educators need to come out with better ideas to help come out of this situation.The educators need to dig deeper for the root cause of the gender equality problems in the school. They also have to think about the discrepancies between the two genders. They need to find out each and every cause which causes the problem.
Some of the problems might be related to the gender bias, gender gap and the adolescent age. Girls somehow lose interest in the science and technology related subjects when they are growing up. That’s how there is technology related gender gap building up. The existing technology gender gap is still one of the reason why we are having gender issues. Also, there are other differences how the men and women use the technology.
Social issues like sexism and racism should also be considered as causes. In the fields of education, sexism is in the form of low expectations for the girls which isn’t quite good for their development.
Gender is in the social and the biological category with every aspect shaped and nurtured at school . we should try our best to make sure female students do not suffer from certain forms of problems.The gender issues everyone is facing in school has made most of the researchers more focused. They are currently focusing on the teacher behavior and the students’ reaction towards it. So they conducted research and started to analyses the views of the school students.
Some of the issues they had to deal with is the gender issues. While most of the students didn’t think it was of that much importance but a few students mentioned that there was some unfair treatment meted out to boys. They believe that the boys are picked out more when both the genders, the girls and the boys do perform the same actions.Both the genders, the male and female felt that this was one injustice done to the boys. But however certain students also thought that this discrimination could be blamed on the behavior and nature of the boys. Girls are generally labelled to be better in their nature and behavior than the boys.
