1. Slater, Lori Melissa. GENDER BIAS IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS: AN EXAMINATION OF TEACHER ATTITUDES.

Degree: Specialist in Education, Educational Psychology, 2003, Miami University

This study investigated the perceptions of early childhood teachers regarding the topic of gender equity in their classrooms and in education in general. A self-developed survey asked kindergarten through third grade educators to anonymously reflect on gender differences among their students in the areas of play activities, discipline and instructional needs, classroom structure, curriculum materials, and teaching methods. Data were analyzed by determining common trends in the teachers’ responses, thereby giving insight into their perceptions of the needs of male and female students. Results indicated that the respondents viewed their students as equal in abilities and considered gender equity to be an important issue. However, the teachers also stated that they do not consciously think about gender equity in their daily practices, indicating that this issue may still be part of the “hidden curriculum”. Advisors/Committee Members: Mosley-Howard, Susan (Advisor).

2. Lancaster, Linda A. Social construction of illicit teacher-student relationships: a media analysis.

Degree: 2016, Texas Woman's University

Teacher sexual misconduct has received widespread media attention. The focus of this study is to examine and analyze online news articles about cases involving teacher- student participants. The goal is to investigate how sexual misconduct by teachers is portrayed by media. Most research has been journalistic in nature. Therefore, journalists are filters for the narratives that surround each case. While sexual abuse of students is a serious issue, it has failed to garner a consolidated effort to provide preventative methods. Quantitative methods are used in analysis of the demographic characteristics, while qualitative methods are used to examine terminology in news articles. By combining content analysis with critical discourse analysis, I am able to examine data from 308 news articles involving 104 Texas teachers from 2014. Findings show that media coverage differs based on gender, race, and age of participants. Terminology in each article frames the participants in a precise manner and highlights particular details. In addition, certain types of cases receive national and international coverage, while others are ignored. Media coverage of teacher misconduct cases is a complex issue involving factors such as language, headline choices, bias, and stereotypes. Preventative measures will require this issue to be seen as a harmful social problem. Since media has the power to influence public opinion, understanding media’s role is a key component.
