Whenever schools adopt programs that reflect political climate changes in the outside world, the temperature of discussion among politicians, students, teachers and parents rises to a fever pitch. What happens when programs designed to promote equitability across gender difference are applied to individual schools, with their unique demographics and local cultures?
In this groundbreaking collection, which draws its insights from the classroom as well as the faculty room and the dining room table, contributors expose the volatility of gender reform programs currently in practice. Everybody speaks here, from old-guard teachers and principals to radical educators, class clowns to teachers' pets. Drawing on a deep knowledge of gender issues in schools and of feminist theories, policies and practices, this compelling and provocative collection will surprise, unsettle and inspire parents, teachers and researchers.
