Australia Training 4,000 Teachers to Root Out Sexism in Preschoolers

Article here. Excerpt:

'Four thousand teachers in Australia are to be put through a training program specially designed to help them root out sexism in pre-schoolers.

The regional government in Victoria is developing a course to help educators spot children who “enact sexist values, beliefs and attitudes” from the age of four.

According to The Australian, the new project will cost taxpayers $3.4million AUS ($2.6million US).

A tender document released by state officials cites research showing that kids are already operating within “gendered norms” at pre-school and need “anti-bias” strategies to help educate them out of it.'
