Gender differences in educational outcomes Study on the measures taken and the current situation in Europe
This study contains a review of the research literature on gender and education and summarises the main findings from international performance surveys on gender differences in education. It provides secondary analyses of PISA data mostly focusing on the variation of achievement by gender. The comparative overview of policies and measures in place in European countries with respect to gender equality in education forms the main part of the report.
Specific examples are given to illustrate the extent to which European countries have been implementing concrete policy measures that target gender inequalities in education.
