Abstract

It was primarily the feminisation of primary education that spurred the research project reported on here. Feminisation is not only caused by the small percentage of male students opting for primary teacher training but also due to the relatively large percentage of male students in a teacher training programme that appear to drop out prematurely and leave without a diploma. This investigation is conducted to find answers to the question as to why primary teacher education shows such gender specific output. A small scale longitudinal research project was set up to explore the question: Can gender-specific student factors be identified in relation to school-internal factors which lead to differentiated performance of male and female students in primary teacher education?
