Gendered Views of Managing Discipline in School and Classroom
Oplatka, Izhar; Atias, Miri
Gender and Education, v19 n1 p41-59 Jan 2007
The current study explored male and female principals' views of classroom and discipline management from a gender perspective. Based on semi-structured interviews with 16 primary school principals from Israel, the study points to gendered views of school discipline, in that certain perspectives to prevent or handle discipline problems in school were indicated either by the male principals or by the female principals. Likewise, there are differences between men and women in principalship regarding the idealized role of the principal in managing school discipline and the essential aims of effective school discipline. Several research implications for the research on gender in educational administration are suggested. (Contains 1 note.)
