Funk, Carole
This paper argues that sexism and gender discrimination remain a significant problem in elementary, secondary, and higher education, and offers specific educational strategies and solutions to help overcome such inequalities. The paper explores female socialization and stereotyping, along with the real physiological and psychological differences between males and females that affect learning and academic performance. It examines research on discrimination in elementary schools, secondary schools, and institutions of higher education, along with the effects of such discrimination. The paper then offers 70 specific strategies and solutions to curricular, cultural, methodological, evaluation, counseling, and staff development problems faced by schools and colleges. (MDM)
