An introduction to gender and education as a method of inquiry into the role of education in society. In particular, the course explores the relationship of gender and education in the context of formalized schooling, both in Canada and around the world. By focusing on gender, this course considers the experiences of people in their roles of students, classmates, teachers, and in positions of leadership. For people of faith, students will become familiar with ‘gender’ as a sociological variable (i.e. cultural) in schooling by exploring current sociological theories of education and current lived realities of girls and boys in schools.
