Culturally created differences between boys and girls The phrase ‘other things being equal’ is highly significant in drawing attention to the fact that relevant differences between the sexes include culturally determined ‘gender differences’ as well as the biologically determined sex differences. Men and women are unable to compete on equal terms if either sex has been disadvantaged by their cultural experiences in developing the kind of skills, knowledge and understanding necessary for successful participation in a particular activity.

Dahrendorf (1962) agreed that inequalities are a feature of any society. He illustrated this point with reference to an example of an imaginary society held together by a desire to exchange news of intrigue, scandal and general gossip. Even in this society, he believed that members would quickly become distinguished by the quality of their stories and their manner of recounting them so that a rank ordering of members would result. While this may highlight difficulties in defining social equality in terms of literally ‘making people the same’, it nevertheless leaves open the question of whether a commitment to the principle of equal opportunities is a matter of attempting to equalise outcomes to as great an extent as possible.

Similarly, if social development is advocated as a prime aim the teacher needs to design a curriculum that includes substantial opportunity for group work. Lesson objectives should highlight social skills such as leadership, listening skills and tolerance. As above, feedback to pupils and assessment of achievement must be clearly related to the objectives of the lesson. Here it would be mastery of the social skills identified. Working through the implications of adopting a particular point of view is a valuable exercise and well worth exploring before coming to any firm decision.
