Abstract

Primary education is the foundation of learning and discovery, igniting curiosity and equipping children with the essential skills to navigate the world. In this stage, teachers unlock children's potential and transform them into effective individuals in the future. The objective of this study was to compare the effectiveness of female instructors in schools for girls with schools for boys. The study utilized a quantitative research approach and employed a closed-ended questionnaire with a five-point Likert scale to deliver the survey. The research design followed in this paper was casual comparative. A sample of 327 female elementary teachers (174 from schools for girls and 153 from schools for boys) and 400 primary/elementary grade children (200 from each group) were chosen using the stratified proportional sampling approach. The results showed a significant difference in female teachers' performance between elementary schools for boys and girls, with female instructors performing better in the latter. Based on the results, the authors suggest that only female teachers should be hired for schools catering to females.
