School Related Gender-Based Violence: Case of Kakheti Region Schools and Kindergartens

Event Format
In person
CGIS S354, 1730 Cambridge St

The presentation addresses school-related gender-based violence (SRGBV) as a violation of human rights and a form of gender discrimination with harmful effects on physical, psychological, and educational well-being. This work focuses on exploring gender-responsive pedagogy in schools and kindergartens within the Kakheti region of Georgia. We will delve into empirical data collected on the gender awareness of teachers, parents, and school/pre-school principals. Specifically, we will examine gender-sensitive aspects of various teaching components, including curriculums, lesson planning and delivery, the learning environment, games and materials, as well as the language used by teachers and principals, and student assessment practices. The study is supported by the Shota Rustaveli National Science Foundation's Fundamental Research State Grants.
