Gender in STEM Education: A Data-Driven Learning Guide Go to Resource


Although the historic discrimination against girls and women in education has been eliminated for the most part, and schools have made much progress in eliminating gender bias from their policies, programs, and practices, there is evidence that females still have not achieved full educational equity.

This exercise explores gender participation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education, from high school through college and into the workforce, and whether participation has changed over the past 20 years. Crosstabulations and frequencies will be used.
