Gender Justice and School Education
Gao, Desheng
Frontiers of Education in China, v4 n2 p252-267 Jun 2009
Gender justice includes three basic dimensions: gender equality, respect for difference, and free choice. In reality, schools construct and reproduce the gender injustice of the social culture through multiple dimensions that include the visible and the invisible curriculum, and the teacher's behaviour. In terms of gender justice, the social culture and the school culture are like two separate "circulations", but these two circulations are of the same inner structure. However, in pursuing the value of gender justice, we need to start from both of these two "circulations" at the same time. As a self-conscious cultural institution, the school should recognize its own small circulation, and then pursue the realization of gender justice by all possible means. Moreover, the more important contribution of the school is to help drive the larger transformation of gender justice in the social culture.
