Gender equality means providing equal oppotunities to both men and women in political, economic, education, and health aspects. How can schools support gender equality goals?
School, where people of all gender, nationality, and race acquire education from has the responsibility of fairly teaching and treating all admitted students. There is no doubt that inequality between genders is a very common problem amongst humans; naturally, it affects students as well. As a result, bullying, underestimating, and other such otherworldly problems arise, and it is exceedingly crucial to prevent them from growing. To do so, schools can expose students to the “SDGs”. As this insanely sensitive topic arose rapidly over time, countries situated all around the world agreed upon demolishing gender inequality. Currently, it is one of the seventeen agreed goals, also known as the “ Sustainable Development Goals.” By using this to their advantage, schools can hold campaigns to enable students to take part in the action taking, as well as using presentations ( a set of informative documents) to further inform them. Another way schools can stand up for the goal is by treating students equally. As widely known, children take up actions from their surroundings, and if they see teachers treating both males and females equally, it will be easier for them to follow. Additionally, making rules for students to follow is yet another way of supporting equality between genders. To conclude, I believe in the fact that it is relatively important to support gender equality, and I am very proud to say that my school tries its best to expose students to the issue and take considerate actions. It is far easier to teach kids starting today, rather than teaching grown adults and regretting tomorrow.
