The article is based on authors’ study which contains observation of 122 graduate students during cultural diversity course. According to their research, public policy and academic need demand to broaden educational administration preparation program. People live in man-dominated society, and it affects women lifestyle in their academic life. As a case in point, women get high level education at school, and university, and despite the fact that the education level becomes better and better than past, today, there are still obstacles for women in job positions. Although they are well educated, they cannot work as a leader because of gender stereotypes.
Teachers need to be self-reflective and to think about our own teaching. After each lesson I put the following questions to myself: Was the lesson effective?, What were my strengths and weaknesses?, How could it be improved? What follows are some of my reflections on various important items in my training period from the observations and own experiences carried out in the classrooms: -I have met lots of children in my internships and that is awesome for me. All the classrooms contain pupils with different abilities, different attitudes to English language and different styles of learning. I think that it is positive but also it is more difficult to respond to their different needs and interest.
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. Different forms of research were conducted in order to thoroughly present credible results in support of the proposed hypothesis; these research materials will include quantitative and qualitative resources with extensive secondary data analysis.
Quality Control: This is one of the techniques often used in establishing quality assurance in the educational system at all levels. Ojedele (2007) stated that quality control should be the concern of a country in its drive towards technological and scientifically development. vi. Access and Equity: The issue of access or the trend of students transiting from the junior secondary school to other levels of education has not been encouraging as it has been falling short of the expectation Ojedele, (2007). The issue at the tertiary level presents a more serious concern in terms of variation in access at the Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education and in terms of gender disparity.
Student motivation has been found as a critical component to student success (Brophy, 2004; Deci, Vallerand, Pelletier, & Ryan, 1991). According to Crump (1995), “Student motivation is a major problem in classrooms today. Many students are bored, inattentive and unable to see a connection between schoolwork and their lives outside the classrooms” (p. 3). Learning is influenced not only by the interest of student about what is taught and how is taught, but learning also influenced by the interaction and relation between student and teacher. McCroskey (2001) find out that student’s learning is considerably affected by teacher’s immediacy.
A study published in the Journal Science persists in supporting the idea that gender inequality exists in academia. According to researchers from the University of Illinois and in Princeton University, women are inconsiderately underrepresented in academic fields, such as the sciences, humanities, social sciences, and math, because of stereotypes. The idea is that women’s intellectual abilities and aptness are inferior to those of men. Prior to the issue, literacy rates among young Afghan women are disturbingly low: only 18 percent of women between 15 and 24 can fully read. While the total number of children enrolled in primary schools is increasing gigantically, the percentage of female students is deliberately not.
By narrowing the choices to sending their kids to a coeducational or to a single-sex school, this paper argued that the coeducation might be more beneficial compared to the single-sex education as it improves interpersonal communication skills of the students between both genders, offers a wide variety of curriculum and co-curriculum activities, and breaks down the negative gender stereotypes in the society. For nearly a decade, proponents of single-sex schooling have argued that boys and girls differ so fundamentally in brain functioning, interest, learning style and stress responsiveness. Females for example, may benefit more from listening and speaking tasks whereas males may prefer hands-on activities targeting their kinaesthetic preferences. In other words, single-sex school teachers recognize how their students learn so they will adapt their teaching styles to attend the specific needs based on their gender. However, St. Andrew’s College (2013) argued that teachers in coeducational schools are aware of the diversities in learning that exist between
In the article, “Fairy Tales and Gender Stereotypes”, it expresses how children are being taught that women are very vulnerable and weak when it comes to inconvenient situations. However the article does provide a point and that is that many jobs are being labeled for men and women. Stated in the article on paragraph 2, “the secretary, assistant, or housework was categorized under “female while lawyers, CEO’s and higher-up positions were designated to “males”. This also affects school students because they are taking classes/pathways that will help them understand materials required for a certain career but society is labeling jobs that require more work or are in higher paying are considered to be jobs for men while jobs like taking care of children or simple house tasks are seen as jobs to be fulfilled for
This type of relationship is highly important in terms of determining the student’s values both in professional and social roles. Teachers play an important role in the trajectory of students throughout the formal schooling experience (Baker, Grant, & Morlock, 2008). Improving students' relationships with teachers has important, positive and long-lasting implications for both students' academic and social development. Solely improving students' relationships with their teachers will not produce gains in achievement. However, those students who have close, positive and supportive relationships with their teachers will attain higher levels of achievement than those students with more conflict in their relationships.
Research questions: 1) What do you think that Teachers are/ have been the greatest influence in your career choice? 2) Do Governmental policies affect in choice of career among women in the field of TVET? 3) Are there any other government factors responsible for low participation of female in technical education and vocational profession? 4) Does socio economic status of female students affect their career choice? 5) Do opportunities and privileges affect career choice of TVET?
