There are many issues related to gender in education and gender is a key element in any discussion of Social Justice in Education.
CTF has identified gender, equity, status of women and girls, gender “gaps” in education, sexual identity and sexual orientation as some of the issues for its work.
Status of Women
CTF established an Ad Hoc Committee on the Status of Women at the 2006 Annual General Meeting. During the 80’s and early 90’s, the Status of Women and girls was a major focus for the federation and a major research project A CAPELLA was undertaken.
Goals of the new committee include:
- Rebuilding the Status of Women Networks
- Conducting an analysis of the current situation
- Lobbying for women’s issues
- Improving the situation for women within the teaching profession and the broader societal context.
