Diminished numbers of women compared to men in the sciences is a reoccurring theme in education studies. It is a conundrum that exists even in the most modern countries. This book takes a critical look at why more high school girls in Turkey are not moving into professional roles as scientists but rather choosing positions in medicine or science education. A comparison of traditional, moderate, and modern female teachers in Turkish high schools clearly shows that although Turkey is quickly modernizing at the national level, traditional views of appropriate female roles and acceptable jobs pervade the educational system and can be seen in the biased interactions of women teachers with their female students. Female teachers? expressed attitudes and subtle behaviors send clear messages that play a critical role in girls? desire to become scientists. This groundbreaking research will enlighten both educators and administrators working around the world, not just in Turkey. Students seeking degrees in education will benefit from its insightful model combining classroom observation, interviews, quantitative methods, and socio-cultural theory.
