Preventing gender-based violence in schools: school curriculum to download

Melbourne Graduate School of Education, 24 March 2016

A new early secondary school program is equipping teachers to tackle gender inequality and gender-based violence in the classroom.

Authored by University of Melbourne academics, the curriculum Connect with respect: Preventing gender-based violence in schools is being translated into Chinese, Khmer and Myanmar languages for teachers in the Asia-Pacific region.

Lead academic Associate Professor Helen Cahill said that the program is freely available and relevant to all high school teachers who want to address this issue.
