The Students’ Perspective: Teacher Gender and Authority


Written by Erin E. Glayzer


This book analyzes the effects of gender on classroom authority in a secondary, bilingual program at two charter schools in Madrid, Spain. Using questionnaires, surveys, classroom observations, student focus groups and teacher interviews, both quantitative and qualitative results were obtained.
The topic of gender equality is very prominent within today ’s society. However, some countries have more gender equality than others. Within Spain, machismo created a highly patriarchal society and the forty-year dictatorship by Francisco Franco may have impacted individual perception of gender roles due to his restrictions of women in education and the workplace.
The aim of this research is to help identify perceptions on teacher authority based on gender within a cultural, biological, and religious context. The amount of gender inequality that can still be seen within the school system in Spain and its effects within the classroom and on teacher authority is observed.
