ARCOS G, Estela; FIGUEROA A, Víctor; MIRANDA J, Christian e RAMOS, Carmen. State of the art and foundations for the gender indicators construction in education. Estud. pedagóg. [online]. 2007, vol.33, n.2, pp. 121-130. ISSN 0718-0705. doi: 10.4067/S0718-07052007000200007.
This study reports the advances in the theoretical and operational discussion of the gender approach in the educational area. The document describes the theoretical and methodological complexity observed in the social sciences when elaborating indicators orientated to reporting, clarifying or evaluating the functioning of the educational establishments. Due to the lack of theories and general models, it is attempted to investigate in the first cycle of the secondary education, from the opinion of the involved actors, the presence of some variables that allow designing an indicator matrix that could explain the relations between all the factors associated to gender that influence the formative process. From this perspective, the search of gender indicators in the school space becomes a contribution that the research team tries to deliver to the educational national system.
