Diversity >> Gender and Sexuality

by Michael Apple - 1985
The fact that most elementary school teachers are female provides a key to understanding why there are often attempts by state bureaucrats, industry, and academics to control the curricular and teaching practices in classrooms. It also explains why these externally derived controls are often transformed by teachers once they are in their classrooms.

by Harvey Siegel - 1983
Jane Roland Martin's charge that a male cognitive perspective dominates educational philosophy is assessed. Martin's views on the ideal educated person (in writings of R. S. Peters and others), gender bias in the intellectual disciplines, the rationality learning theory, and self-alienation of educated women are analyzed.

by Michael Apple - 1983
The connections between class and gender must be recognized if attempts to rationalize and proletarianize teaching are to be understood.

by Helen Astin - 1975

by Jinny Goldstein - 1973
Research work of professional social scientists and women's rights groups has revealed the existence of sex discrimination in American higher education.

by Margaret Mead - 1971
If there is explicit recognition of tasks which are appropriate for either sex, tasks appropriate for one sex or the other, and tasks which require the complementary presence of both sexes, this should serve to reduce the kind of polarization over occupation, whether coming from Women's Liberation or from those conservatives who feel strongly that women's place is in the home, or at least at homelike tasks dealing with individuals, teaching, nursing, safeguarding, listening.

by Sara Zimet - 1970
