Short- and long-term consequences of teachers' gender biases

Date: Friday Aug 31, 2018, 12:00 pm

From: Queensland

Presentation by Dr. Rigissa Megalokonomou, University of Queensland

 

Abstract: Recent research focuses on factors determining gender differences in academic achievements and in university field of study. In this study we focus on how teachers’ gender role attitudes and stereotypes influence the gender gap by affecting the environment at school. We explore the extent to which teachers’ gender bias in high school influences students’ academic performance in high-stake exams that determine admission to universities and on students’ choice of university field of study.  We introduce a new way of measuring teacher gender bias and we link teachers over time to get a persistent measure of their bias based on many classes.
