Gender and Teacher Identity, Motivation and Well-Being
Module 2 highlights gender as a crosscutting dimension of teachers' experiences of a) becoming teachers and b) the likelihood of their continuing in the profession. Gender is also a very significant factor in determining teachers' roles, responsibilities, and status in families and communities. Gender impacts teachers' perceptions of themselves and their priorities for the future.
In this section, we explore gender issues for teachers in more depth, with particular reference to the Healing Classrooms assessments in Ethiopia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, and Afghanistan.
