Gender Socialization in National Education and the Formation of a New State: Israel as a Case Study
Shimony, Tali Tadmor
History of Education, v34 n6 p639-656 Nov 2005
Gender research demonstrates the important role played by the school in determining a gendered world-view and the influence of the school system on gender-role socialization. Most studies based on the constructivist school relate mainly to one of two issues: either the gender of the teachers themselves, or the gender-mapping of the curriculum under discussion. This article provides a case study of the moulding of the gender world-view of students in the school system during the first two decades of the existence of the State of Israel, which was mobilized to shape a common national identity. It provides a gendered analysis of the educational system, with particular foci on the breakdown of teachers and the analysis of curriculum text within the historical context of a society that was in the process of forming a new state.
