Math as a Gatekeeper: Ethnic and Gender Inequity in Course Taking of the Sciences in Israel.
Ayalon, Hanna
American Journal of Education, v104 n1 p34-56 Nov 1995
Examines between-school variation in gender and ethnic inequality in course-taking of physics and biology. A multilevel analysis of 19,743 Israeli twelfth graders reveals the sciences are taken less often by underprivileged Jewish ethnic group students, physics is taken more often by males and biology by females, and gender typing is particularly prominent in math-oriented schools.
