This Technical Guidance Note (TGN) is part of a series of documents on integrating gender equality into the sector operations of Caribbean Development Bank (CDB). The Notes identify key issues which lead to, and reinforce gender inequality, and propose possible solutions for addressing them.
This specific TGN focuses on Education and Training. The importance of this sector to the human resource and overall development of the Caribbean must be underscored. This document identifies the key gender issues which have a negative impact on the development of the sector and educational outcomes. The highlighted issues and suggested solutions clearly point to the need for gender-based research and gender- sensitive perspectives in the crafting and evaluation of educational programmes, curricula, teacher training and school and classroom management.
The expectation is that the TGN will assist the relevant field officers, technical specialists and decision- makers in effectively infusing gender equality into the Region’s education sector going forward.
