Download (625Kb)


    In theoretical part of diploma thesis I firstly explained the difference between sex and gender. I continued with gender stereotypes and stereotypical distinction of work between men and women along with explanation of why such distinction is wrong. The thesis continues with reasons for lack of males in preschool education. I stressed out reasons for the current situation and explained why it needs to change. I compared current situation in Slovenia with other countries in Europe and also worldwide. Countries with good examples are presented at the end of theoretical part. In empirical part I performed an interview with male and female preschool teachers. I wanted to examine the effect their gender has on their work in general and in more practical situations of working with children, their parents and other coworkers. I also questioned them about how the society sees and treats them about the professional path they chose. I discovered that gender has no influence on work quality of one individual. But both genders being represented in preschools does improve the quality of work of institution.
