From birth, the school has been constituted as one of the agents of socialization players the structure of the social system in which it is immersed. The observation and analysis of the pattern of relationships that make up the life of the school allow finding the existence, in the same relational networks that reproduce the valid stereotypes in society and an unequal distribution of roles between men and women.
Analysis of the school, from a gender perspective and through the study of hierarchical and power relationships that exist between members of the educational community, will notice the presence of gender stereotypes in the organization and in different structures schools. The relationships that we consider are of two types: first, those set in the horizontal plane between professional groups of equal rank and, secondly, those set vertically, which is occurring in the pyramidal structure of management and governance of schools.
To approach this reality and to analyze, from a gender perspective, we present the results of the evolution in the last five years, professional templates that integrate the educational community (teachers of different levels of non-university education and specialized management staff, administrative staff, junior and service) in schools of general system of the Galician Autonomous Community.
