Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0850928451, Paperback)

Gender disparity in education has usually been experienced as disadvantaging girls. Now a new phenomenon of boys’ underachievement—both in terms of participation and performance—is appearing in a number of countries.

This book reviews the research on boy’s underachievement and presents the arguments that have been put forward to understand its causes. The authors also present new studies from Australia, Jamaica, Lesotho and Samoa; and they use both the research and the evidence from the case studies to explore the causes and policy implications of the trend—the first time a truly cross-regional approach has been applied to the issue.

This book will interest all education policy makers and analysts concerned to ensure gender equality in school education.
