Reports on inequality of education between boys and girls
Gender gaps : where schools still fail our children by American Association of University Women( Book )

5 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the eve of the 21st century, what progress have we made? What gaps still need to be addressed? How are technological advances and profound shifts in school demographics changing the way we teach? Most importantly, do new approaches to teaching and learning benefits both girls and boys? Gender Gaps confirms that public schools are making progress toward equitable treatment of boys and girls. Nevertheless, high academic standards for all students cannot be realized without equity. Equity differs from equality in asking not whether girls and boys receive the same education but whether they receive the right education to achieve a shared standard of excellence
Girls in the middle : working to succeed in school by Jody Cohen( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report summarizes a qualitative study that examined girls in six middle schools representing a range of geographic locations and settings as well as the racial and ethnic mix found in schools across the United States. The schools were all involved in educational reform efforts. The report examines how girls negotiate middle school and gauges girls' reactions to gender equity initiatives and school reform efforts. Chapter 1, "New Challenges, New Expectations," describes the study's rationale and methodology. Chapter 2, "How Girls Negotiate School," presents six girls who demonstrate a range of behavioral strategies described as: (1) speaking out; (2) doing school; and (3) crossing borders. Chapter 3, "School Snapshots: Differing Views of Gender," discusses girls' reactions to school reforms and gender equity initiatives at three middle schools. Chapter 4, "Gender Equity and School Reform," examines school location differences in defining gender issues. Chapter 5, "Outcomes and Recommendations," identifies eight outcomes: (1) girls use strategies to form identity and negotiate school; (2) mentors are crucial to girls' developing sense of self; (3) school reform should connect to girls' and boys' adolescent experiences and developmental needs; (4) leadership opportunities bolster girls' competence and increase actual influence in school; (5) suburban schools approach gender issues through explicit policies, urban schools through committed individuals, and rural schools through reforms that address gender issues indirectly; (6) schools must mesh policy, committed individuals, and program reform to make gender equity essential; (7) public dialogue is critical to sustained school change; and (8) research on gender issues can benefit girls in all school settings. Strategies such as detracking, small learning communities, developmentally appropriate approaches, and multicultural and feminist curricula will empower all students. Contains 7 appendices detailing the research approach and approximately 45 references. (Kdfb)

Separated by sex : a critical look at single-sex education for girls( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Out of a conviction that separating students by sex somehow works better for at least some, scattered public schools in Virginia, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Illinois, and California have all experimented with the practice. In the wake of these experiments, public discussion has often focused more on legal and political concerns than educational results. Recognizing the need for further information, the American Association of University Women Educational Foundation here presents a comprehensive inquiry into the subject. The findings of the foremost scholars in the field illuminate the complex educational issues raised by the separation of students by sex. - Foreword
