Socialization and culture play an important role in the development of empathy according to Baron-Cohen and Wheelwright, (2004) Eisenberg and Lennon (1983) proposed that biases in self-report scales could influence the observed gender differences. These differences may be because men may be unwilling to report empathic encounters due to social anticipations. When a tool is thought to measure s empathy, it may induce responses affected by an individual’s classificationto gender stereotypes (Michalska, Kinzler, &Decety., 2013). One of the most common stereotypes in society is that females are more considerate and empathetic than males (Rueckert, 2011). Thus, it is
To put it simply, gender is the identification of male or female due to their ability to perform as male or female (reproductive roles). it could also be seen as a range of characteristics pertaining to and differentiating between masculinity and femininity. Gender plays a very significant role in the society. The gender of a person could determine how well they fit in the society as some societies tend to favor the males better than the females as they believe that males are superior to female. This in some societies is a problem as women are trying to fight for their right to be able to do things that the males do.
Many schools in other countries spend less time in school and do not receive homework. Those schools are the ones with the highest test scores. The US is not even in the top twelve for best scores. With all the extra time students spend on school related items, such as homework, it is not helping. An article written by Sean Coughlan states that, “Pupils in England already get an average of 150 hours extra teaching per year than their Finnish counterparts.”
This lead to black adults being less educated than the majority of white adults. “A white student who completed the eighth grade was almost certainly far ahead of the black child at the same grade level,” (Peter Irons). White students were taught more. The learning
There are many gender stereotypes about men and women such as men are leaders, men are strong, men are rulers, but women are treated conversely like a second gender. In the poem "Rite of Passage," Sharon Olds describes all today's stereotypes about male and shows how the world views a normal man in a society. Also, in the writing "The War Against Boys" Christina Hoff Sommers writes Patricia O'Reilly opinion about that "It is really clear that boys are Number One in this society and in most of the world" (283). All those gender stereotypes could lead to misogyny, sexual harassment, and violence into families, at school, even on streets. Those stereotypes are very dangerous for each individual and for a whole society.
Abstract: There are unequal privileges shared by men and women in the United States workforce. Throughout history human civilization have seen a revolution in the role of women up until modern society, where it is perceived as equal. However, although it might be invisible, an inequality gap still exists and acts as a glass ceiling for women. This research paper will be focusing primarily on the sociological and psychological factors that contribute to this difference in privilege.
As technology improves the experience level of global competitiveness, the demand for skilled STEM employees increased as well. The industries with the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics now important than ever, and we must also address the lack of women's participation in STEM-based programs. Historically, STEM fields has seen the involvement of men, and in this paper we would like to examine the reasons girls and women give for deciding not to go to undergraduate STEM programs and careers. It is clear that women are central to workforce diversity. For the most part, women socialized to think differently than men, so they should have input to provide an alternative perspective STEM related project.
Also, in another study it was pointed out that only 38% of the new nursing graduates had acquired the expected competencies including the ability to make correct clinical judgments . One of the reasons behind academic underachievement and failure can be attributed to the students’ study skills and learning weaknesses . Another reason behind such a phenomenon can be the students’ low self-efficacy. Besides influencing the students’ motivation, self-efficacy influences the learners’ endeavor, perseverance and the time spent for learning . Approximately a quarter of the young population is at the verge of academic failure risk and the other behavioral problems which may subsequently arise .
Although women have significantly increased their skills and participation in the workforce, the average full-time working woman still earns 20 percent less of what a full-time working man gets paid (Bidwell, Allie. ). The gender pay gap still exists because historically men have had more education and experience in the workforce than women, although this is changing. If the gender pay gap keeps narrowing, at the rate it has been going, it will not fully close until the year of 2059 (need to reference source). In today’s world, women are paid less than men for equal work which is wrong because it teaches men they are superior to women. The gender pay gap has not been shut down in a single country, in the entire world, since 2006 (Arnett, George. ).
This is a partial truth. It 's true that women including those in leadership positions make different choices than men. Nearly four out of ten women at some point in their career have left the workforce voluntarily, and have reported taking jobs with less compensation and fewer responsibilities to accommodate family responsibilities. By contrast only one in ten men left the workforce for family related reasons. What drops this opt-out narrative though, is the subtle side of sexism.
Although the Hispanic high school dropout rate continues to fall according to the City University of New York (CUNY), Hispanics have by far the highest (14%) high-school dropout rate of any group in the country compared to Blacks (7%), Asians (1%) and Whites (2%). Depicted on the graph, high school dropouts (no-High School) earn less than half what graduates make, college graduates make about eighty percent more than high school graduates, and those with graduate degrees make about two-and-one-half times more than high school graduates. Family income influences college attendance and the differences in education levels explain why less education translates to low paying jobs and low family
Standardized testing has not improved education in America. Standardized tests have been issued in schools all across the nation for years now. Some people like them and some people don’t. They do not help the student learn more information than they would without the tests. The U.S. has dropped from 18th highest scores in schools in the world to be in the 30’s on almost all of the subjects on the test.
Obviously, this is not true. Instead, a group of educational organizations and civil rights groups are saying that standardized tests are an advantage to white and Asian students. For example, “in Virginia only 45% of black students in each school must pass standardized math tests while 68% of whites, and 82% of Asians must do the same,”(Rooks). Also, the National Center for Fair & Open Testing says that students of color are more likely to be held back because of low test scores and score lower on college admission tests such as the SAT and ACT(Racial Justice). In addition, research has shown that minorities have lower test scores than whites because of hidden biases in the development of standardized tests(Reese).
