4.5.1 Gender Parity Index of Trained Teachers in Secondary Education (Ratio) | |

Definition : | The gender parity index (GPI) of trained teachers in secondary education is defined as the ratio of female teaching work force in secondary education to male teaching work force in secondary education which has appropriate and relevant pedagogical training. A GPI value of 1 signifies that there is no difference in the indicator for female and male teachers. A GPI of less than 1 indicates that the value is higher for male teachers than for female teachers, while the opposite is true when the GPI is greater than 1. |
