Despite Similar Test Scores, Women Don’t Go into Science and Engineering as Often as Men: New OECD PISA Report on CMRubinWorld

Share Article

Continuing the ongoing series of conversations with experts on education from around the world, C. M. Rubin talked with Francesca Borgonovi (PISA analyst) and Marilyn Achiron (education editor) about The ABC of Gender Equality in Education: Aptitude, Behaviour, Confidence, in the latest report from PISA on the status of gender in education today.

The report shows that economic inequality in pay is at least partially attributable to women pursuing less lucrative careers than men. Despite similar test scores, women don’t go into science and engineering as often as men do and have lower self-confidence in this area. Borgonovi and Achiron offer their advice on the issues, including teacher bias.
