Ángela SAIZ LINARES Noelia CEBALLOS LÓPEZ About the authors


The purpose of this paper is to raise awareness about some essential curricular and organizational issues, that help advance towards a model for coeducational schools. Under an ethnographic approach, we present the most important results of a study conducted in a Spanish public school, which is a paradigmatic example of a school that undertakes reflections and actions that explicitly strive to eliminate gender discrimination and build other models of masculinity and femininity.
