Preface to “Israeli Jewish and Arab Students’ Gendering of Mathematics”
The pursuit of equity in educational outcomes, and gender equity in particular, was a driving force of the research reported in the article that follows. The underlying assumption was that social science can elucidate contributing social and cultural variables that, if acted upon, can change the outcome of educational endeavours. In adopting this perspective the alternative view, that educational advantage is largely inherited and therefore closed to innovative change, was rejected.
