School leadership, female empowerment and China’s rise
Management in Education
School of Education
The fifth goal of the UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Goals is gender equality and empowerment for all women and girls. If the participants in our research project about Chinese school leadership and role modelling gender equality are to be believed, then China is well along the path to attaining those goals. This matters because China is the largest education system in the world, females are a growing majority in China’s overall student population and they continue to make impressive advances in all aspects of their schooling (Cunningham et al., 2020; OECD, 2018).
