Summary

This volume provides readers with an understanding of the gendered nature of schooling and educational policy at multiple levels. It examines the roles of international agencies, national, state or provincial governments, local school administrations, teachers, and student peer groups. The actions of these groups affect the extent to which educational opportunities, treatment, and outcome are equitable not only by gender but also by race and class. The authors explain the nature of these actions, their interrelationships, their consequences, and the reasons why they often have unintended effects. In addition, the book examines the relationships among gender equity, academic achievement, and educational reform.
