Scholarship on gender issues has matured and deepened in the past decade. Researchers have gone beyond early efforts to show how women have been ignored and are instead posing paradigmatic challenges in their disciplines. This collection gathers together some of the best new research on gender and education. It contains comparative historical accounts of the development of women's education, challenging chapters on girls' academic achievement compared to that of boys, and ethnographic material on socialization into race and gender roles in schools. Other chapters focus on gender differences in parents' involvement in their children's schooling, and class and race differences in the definition of intelligence.
