More women than men work in education professions in Slovenia and the situation is getting more imbalanced still.
Ahead of World Teachers’ Day, Statistics Office data shows that the higher the level of education, the less disproportionate the share. The number of women in education is increasing – in the 2020-2021 academic year the figure rose by 7% compared to four years ago. Their share is highest in kindergartens at 97%, falling to 88% in primary, 66% in secondary and below 50% in tertiary education.
