Description

Beginning with a concrete definition of feminism in relation to education, the authors of this popular and challenging study suggest an answer to the crucial questions: What are our schools teaching, in what way, and how does it impact on the lives of women?

The incisive and thought-provoking contents of this volume include "Equality of Opportunity: Issues of Access and Achievement"; "What is Worth Knowing?: Defining a Feminist Curriculum"; "Teachers, Child Care Workers and Mothers: The Work of Caring and Educating"; "Post-secondary Education and Beyond."

Claiming an Education offers a balanced presentation of the central issues facing education planners as they struggle to define the place of feminism in Canadian schools.

An Our Schools/Our Selves book.
