Abstract
This paper explores gender and education in Croatia and the United States. It aims to call attention to the feminization of the teaching profession with a particular emphasis on the major reasons that have led to this occurrence. The paper focuses on the traditional gender stereotypes which have impacted the teaching profession through their gender bias and have led to the feminization of the teaching profession. The gender discrimination is evident in the teaching hierarchy, the pay gap and the particular male fields. In addition, this paper explores the consequences of the feminization of teaching. The claim that the teaching profession is feminized is substatiated with the use of statistical data taken from both the Croatian Bureau of Statistics and the United States Bureau of Statistics. It is important to note that although the feminization of teaching is on the increase in both Croatia and the United States, which is evident in the figures that show that more women employed as teachers than men, women are still paid less for the same job. Furthermore, regardless of feminization, higher education and better administrative jobs are still dominated by men.

Ovaj rad istražuje rod i obrazovanje u Hrvatskoj i Sjedinjenim Američkim Državama. Cilj ovog rada je skrenuti pozornost na feminizaciju učiteljske profesije s naglaskom na glavne razloge koji su doveli do ove pojave. Ovaj rad se usredotočuje na tradicionalne rodne stereotipe koji su utjecali na učiteljsku profesiju kroz svoju rodnu pristranost i doveli do feminizacije učiteljske profesije. Rodna diskriminacija je očita u nastavnoj hijerarhiji, razlici u plaći i određenim muškim područjima. Dodatno, ovaj rad istražuje I posljedice feminizacije učiteljske profesije. Tvrdnja da je učiteljska profesija feminizirana je poduprijeta korištenjem statističkih podataka preuzetih s Zavoda za statistiku iz Hrvatske i Sjedinjenih Američkih Država. Važno je primijetiti da unatoč tome što je feminizacije profesije u porastu i u Hrvatskoj i Sjedinjenim Američkim Državama, što je očito u brojkama koje pokazuju da je vise žena zaposleno kao učiteljice nego muškarci, žene su svejedno plaćene manje za isti posao. Nadalje, usprkos feminizaciji, visoko obrazovanje i bolji administrativni poslovi su još uvijek pod dominacijom muškaraca.
