Introduction: Gender and Education in Cambodia

Posted by khmernews on November 13, 2006

Although Cambodia has made good progress in education, gender inequality still remains a major challenge in this sector. Boys and girls start schooling on equal footing in primary education but dropout rate among girl students starts to go up with their grade improvement, particularly after completion of secondary level.

Education is one of the sectors where gender issues might be profound. It has two-prong effects with relation to gender. It can address gender equality through widening women’s life choices on one hand. On the other hand, gender blind education can reinforce gender inequality through constructing gender stereotypes.

Gender issues in education sector including high illiteracy rates among women, high dropout rates of girls, and teaching of Chbab Srey in textbooks have long-term implications for women’s economic independence, health, decision-making capacities and their overall empowerment.

Study reveals that poverty, distant location of school, son preference of family in schooling and societal expectation that daughters should be the caregivers in the households futher limit girl’s education.

Goal 2 of the Cambodia Millennium Development Goals (CMDGs) makes explicit provision to eliminate gender disparity in primary and secondary education. Furthermore, the Royal Government of Cambodia’s (RGC) ratification of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) obliges it to promote female education in the country.

    As the medium is not limited to any particular geographical or demographic region, advertising
    on internet radio would give the business an international audience base.
    The table top radio connects to the internet using Wi-Fi or Ethernet cable, and searches for stations by country,
    genre or call letters. You will also need to be sure that you have enough bandwidth from your web
    host to run the programming smoothly.

    anywhere in the United States. All of this said, a very important thing of a social network

    Upholstery coverage by Diane Bohstedt

    “Entertaining was important for them,” said designer Diane Bohstedt of the featured kitchen’s remodel project, as provided by notable furniture in Cambodia construction materials. “They also liked the idea of a furniture style for their kitchen, with lots of different finishes and architectural details in the cabinetry.”
    Bohstedt opted an eclectic approach with different hues to make the design aesthetic multifold. Walls are painted in yellow color according to owners’ favorite palette. The cabinetry is in a painted finish of creamy white with a light toffee glaze while the central cabinets are in stained alder wood that brings warmth to the space.
    “Even though pieces like the pantry are fully functional cabinets, they look like furniture,” added Bohstedt. “From the hallway, the furniture look is the first thing you notice.”

    , to address a kitchen that fit with a busy family, eclectic flexibility of working space is needed.
    The featured kitchen demonstrates the exact concept with aesthetic that respects the house’s bygone era.
    “The design addressed the issue of space by creating multiple work areas that would allow the two children to work alongside their parents without bumping into each other,” said architect Tim Bjella. “The overall layout consists of the central cooking area flanked by a storage area on one side and a clean-up and storage area on the other.”
    “A separate breakfast and micro-cooking area runs along one isle – again, out of the way of the main cooking area,” the architect stated. “For the same reason, the refrigerator, ice maker and wine cooler are situated along the side islands, away from the preparation and cooking area.”
    “Architectural shapes from antiquity, such as columns and arches, were combined with solid, lustrous materials including crushed marble for the arches and limestone tile work and black granite on the countertop,” Bjella added. “The shiny and clean is set alongside the rough and textural, creating layers of interest.”

    Environmentally friendly by Marcie Meditch and John Murphey

    “This project was driven by my ambition to create a design that would check all the boxes in terms of energy conservation while retaining the looks and comfort of an attractive family home,” said architect Marcie Meditch of the concept behind the renovation of the presented residence, as successful furniture shop in Cambodiaconstruction materials informed.
    “We started with a super-insulated skin and high-performance windows,” co-architect John Murphey stated. “These save on heating and cooling costs and reduce the size of the mechanical system required. We worked with mechanical engineering consultants to specify a high-efficiency ground-source heat pump to further reduce energy needs by using the earth’s temperature to reduce heating and cooling loads. This geothermal, below-ground system has the added advantage of being very quiet.”
    “Water recirculation pumps were installed to avoid losing heat as hot water travels to the tapware,” added Meditch. “Outside, at the rear, rain barrels collect rain for watering the garden, while the green roof and rain garden mitigate stormwater runoff – assisted by pervious paving on the driveway.”
