Abstract:  Tite describes an "action research project" looking at sex role learning in the classroom. She explains that action research is based on the idea that the best way to understand a social system is to try to change it, and that the best research is research which leads to solutions for practical problems. An important observation was that teachers are required to nurture good relationships with the parents in the school community. Those of who attempting to undermine sex divisions in the classrooms may well be challenging established value systems in the community. She notes that "wise teachers who need their jobs do well to check out the system for a safety net."
