Idin, Sahin; Dönmez, Ismail
Science Education International, v28 n2 p119-127 Jun 2017
The aim of this study was to investigate Turkish Science teachers' views about gender equity in the scope of science education. This study was conducted with the quantitative methodology. Within this scope, a 35-item 5-point Likert scale survey was developed to determine Science teachers' views concerning gender equity issues. 160 Turkish Science teachers completed the survey. Their responses were analyzed using SPSS. It was revealed that many Turkish Science teachers did not think there was any gender equity in Science Teaching Programmes or their Science textbooks. These Science teachers' views also indicated that there were no gender policies in Turkish science education. They believed gender equity issues were important for students' science achievement. It is recommended that Science teachers have some in-service training on gender equity
