|Abstract:||This contribution analyses the ethnography by trainee teachers; in the classroom. They are to observe situations that indicate the everyday conditions among children; how difference is made; or prohibited. The trainees will return with reports and narratives of certain themes; one of which is the attention given to the boys. |
My purpose is to clarify how the trainee teachers recognize and interpret how hierarchy positions of gender; class; ethnicity; religion; and age meet at certain crossroads. Clashes may indicate that forces of evaluation are on the move in society.
Aspects of gender intersect in recurring themes of integration; xenophobia; any prejudice among teachers; parents; and children. Every cohort focuses one theme; in turn: the supervisor as the ideal model of a teacher; terrible parents; terrible teachers; and how roles will be assigned to children; mostly ’the naughty boy’. The ordinary children seem to be female rather than male children.
