All in One: Fairness, Neutrality and Conservatism--A Case Study of Romania
Miroiu, Mihaela
Prospects: Quarterly Review of Comparative Education, v34 n1 p85-100 Mar 2004
In the past decade, Romania has passed through a profound educational reform. The main outcomes concern tangible progress concerning regulations and the curriculum. In spite of these impressive changes, gender sensitivity and gender fair policies have been largely absent from objectives, subjects, textbooks, assessment and evaluation. The genderless, neutral approach to education masks conservative content and has lifelong consequences for both sexes. This is the reason for the title of this paper: "all in one" education system--fair from a quantitative point of view, neutral in terms of principles, but conservative in content. The author begins by explaining the basic concepts she used in this paper and then discusses the education system of Romania. (Contains 1 table and 13 notes.)
