Socialisation, gender and achievement

Reasons for gender differences in subject choice:

  • peer pressure
  • pupils’ gender identities
  • primary socialisation
  • gender domains
  • school organisation and type (mixed vs. single-sex classes/schools)
  • teacher influence/teaching styles
  • gendered subject images
  • stereotyping in learning materials
  • career preferences/gender segregation in the labour market
