Gender equality and gender gaps in mathematics performance
MetadataShow full item record
In a recent analysis of mathematics performance (Eriksson et al. 2020), national gender egalitarian values were positively associated with an increase in the average mathematics scores of high-school boys relative to girls. This study highlights that progressive gender egalitarian values at a national level might not translate into equality of opportunity at an individual level.
