Abstract

When researching early childhood education from the 1930s to the present, the effects of gendered classes such as shop class vs. home economics have severely influenced the decisions of young girls when pursuing STEM fields. (Rotterdam, 2013, p.5) Throughout the years, there have been efforts to alter the educational program in order to mitigate these effects, but there are still many shortcomings. This research examines data from specific surveys and interviews from people, ages 18-84. These findings help understand the importance of genderless classes in order to provide equal education and opportunities for all genders.
