Learning and resources on gender in education
Exploring teachers' and students' perspectives on gender in rural Peru
Gender-related norms and expectations can either inhibit or serve to empower the lives of boys and girls. The Advancing Learning and Innovation on Gender Norms (ALIGN) programme sought to assess the impact of the Visionaria for Schools (VfS) initiative on gender norms and attitudes of teachers’ and students’ future aspirations, behaviour and important life decisions in rural secondary schools in Cusco, Peru. This briefing note outlines the results of the research efforts and what they mean for gender-norm change in the secondary school context in rural Peru.
