Is Schooling a Risk? Gender, Power Relations, and School Culture in Uganda.
Mirembe, Robina; Davies, Lynn
Gender and Education, v13 n4 p401-16 Dec 2001
This study of AIDS education in Uganda used an ethnography of school culture to explore the contradictions in curriculum intervention. Male domination and power imbalances in the school encouraged attitudes and practices with regard to sexual relationships that negated the official messages of the AIDS curriculum. Examines four forms of school control (hegemonic masculinity, gendered discipline patterns, sexual harassment, and compulsory heterosexuality). (Contains references.) (SM)
