Effet des stéréotypes de genre sur les résultats scolaires d'élèves de cycle 3

Abstract : Despite the government’s will to make school a place of struggle against inequalities between men and women, several studies show that there are disparities in girls' and boys' academic performance. Those disparities have a part in the perpetuation of those inequalities, all the more so as girls and boys tend to turn to different course choices and then to different professional careers. Some researchers have taken an interest in the origin of those disparities. They have thus wondered about the part of school in the perpetuation of those gender stereotypes. School is actually one of the children's spheres of socialisation: they take in norms and values which orientate their representation of the world and of themselves. The aim of this research is to better understand the extent to which the gender stereotypes taken in by pupils may influence their academic performance. The purpose is to comprehend individuals through the filter of gender identity and not through that of sexual identity: this research does not deal with the link between the individuals' sexual identity and their academic performance, but with the link between the pupils' compliance with gender stereotypes and the match of their performance with the latter. At the same time as this link, this study examines the teacher's position with regard to a possible perpetuation of the differences between boys' and girls' academic performance.
