Gender-equitable education and training in Hungary

Erika Grossmann, SUniversity of Szeged, Hungary

The first part of the study text presents important historical milestones concerning gender mainstreaming in the Hungarian education system, followed by the analysis of possible reasons why gender-equitable pedagogy could not take root in Hungary so far. The second part deals with selected relevant documents of educational policy and legal texts relating to the Hungarian educational system amended and revised in 2012 (e.g. National Curriculum). In addition, an extracurricular gender-mainstreaming project will be presented. Certain gender aspects in the tertiary field of education will be revealed in the third part to illustrate that the implementation of gender-equitable education and training in Hungary is still in the very early stages of development.
