It is good to know that researchers are trying ways to make science and technology and inclusive domain for girls. The stereotyping will not go away in a hurry. I think that girls in girls-only schools have a better chance to get involved in science and engineering provided the teachers are keen and schools employ specialist STEM lead teachers as project developers or teachers mentors for in-house training of science and technology teachers.
How about we close underperforming ministries or underperforming political parties? A more sensible approach would surely be to help underperforming schools and not always financially but by sharing with them the systems and pedagogy utilised by better performing schools. You will certainly not aide or inspire by taking the age old route of simply damning the teachers or by encouraging the employment of non-qualified teaching staff. The irony of condemning a system which produced him, the minister for education and the rest of our current government? Wait...... maybe he does have a point?
A typically ignorant statement from a politician that's simply trying to be noticed. He's joining a queue of similarly ignorant types that have no idea of the system. They still believe that individual teacher's set the curriculum. If change is wanted it happens from the top down and not from the bottom up! If change in output is required then the curriculum needs to change, at a senior student level, if change is required then what is contained in NCEA standards needs to change. Personally, I believe that we are reaping what we sow, in that we have grown a monster that is driven by assessment, credit accumulation and school league tables which by the way, the ministry have set no reporting rules for! There are lies, damned lies and statistics.
