Gender in Kurdish Education Program
Third Grade Book as an Example
Keywords:Gender, Gender Equality, Gender and Teacher, Gender and Program.
Gender-related problems and gender diversity have always existed in schools. Many fields of school life are created around the role of traditional gender
Schools play a key role in teaching and strengthening the dominant values of culture, particularly in gender. It is true that students go to school from day one, or kindergarten, known as their gender, and are called boys and girls. Their gender is constantly practiced through stories and free plays and interactions with teachers and peers. Schools are a place to seek special relationship with "best friends" in elementary school and "boys' friends" or "girls" about families and learn about relationships. These are the things that the community expects, and much of what happens at school is related to the gender side, which is why it is important for educators to have a strong understanding of how to deal with gender.
This research is a way to raise awareness and show gender issues in the subjects of the education program. Research (in southern Kurdistan) is not sufficient to raise awareness of gender equality in schools. In this study, the texts (the third grade Kurdish reading book) are based on analyzing texts and images, and the results show that the Kurdish study program includes gender inequality. In other words, the image, role and duties of both genders are not taken into consideration equally. The results of this study are an attempt to take into account gender equality (text, images, tasks and roles) when the curriculum is set up.
