Overview

Gender in Primary and Secondary Education has been written in the context of rapidly expanding education systems worldwide, and particularly the rising enrollment of girls in schools. The author argues that now the challenge of gender mainstreaming goes beyond building schools and ensuring access, to sustaining these gains to secure the future of education for girls. Thus gender mainstreaming in education needs to address the more strategic questions of the relationship between education and wider development and change, and of the relationships between men and women in a rapidly changing world.

The handbook is divided into six chapters, examining key policy and ideological gender mainstreaming issues within education systems and identifying the scope for greater gender mainstreaming. As the latest title in the New Gender Mainstreaming Series on Development Issues, this book will be of interest to civil servants involved in education sector management, policy planners, education policy analysts and professionals, civil society organizers, and academics.
