Exploring Occupational Gender Segregation in Primary Education in China
＂Occupational gender segregation＂ refers to the phenomenon in which a single gender group is concentrated in a certain type of occupation. The high concentration of female teachers in the field of primary education cannot simply be attributed to the imbalance in the gender ratio of teachers， but is the result of a series of social， economic and cultural factors. Through field research， the researchers conducted an in-place and interpretive analysis of the “Occupational gender segregation” in a Chinese primary school. From the perspective of pedagogy， the formation of gender segregation in teachers' team has a deep hidden relationship with gender labeling in the labor market (social factors)， discourse practice of ＂teacher/mother＂， ＂school/ family＂ (school factors)， and individual's structural acceptance of career choice (individual factors).
