Abstract

In 2004, the Taiwanese government enacted the Gender Equity Education Act (GEEA) to address the increasing number of gender inequity incidents on school campuses. The purpose of this qualitative study was to examine faculty and staff's perception of the implementation of GEEA and its influence on the school community. Results indicated that the intersection of values and power dynamics influenced school climates, social interactions, marginalization, and how and to what extent the policy was implemented. Prevention education and guidance teachers’ unique role in administering the GEEA and the conflicts therein are discussed. Recommendations and directions for future research are provided.
