In this two volume set, educators explore the intersection of gender and education. Their entries deal with educational theories, research, curricula, practices, personnel, and policies, but also with variations in the gendering of education across historical and cultural contexts. The various contributors discuss gender as a social construction. The latest research on boys and masculinities, as well as girls and feminism, is included.

The entries in this work cover the breadth of topics related to gender and education. They provide reference information on the history and condition of gender and education from elementary to high school. Entries cover such topics as: alternative schools, historically black colleges and universities in the United States, military colleges and academies, private and public single-sex and co-educational schools, literacy, mathematics achievement, women's centers, teacher interactions with girls and boys, affirmative action in U.S. higher education, sororities and fraternities, educator sexual misconduct, expectations of teachers for boys and girls, heterosexism and homophobia, bullying, harassment, and violence among students, salaries of male and female educators, school choice and gender equity, disabled students and gender equity, Title IX and school sports, black feminism, womanism, and queer theory.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Bank presents a thorough and up-to-date look at issues of gender in education, from elementary through high school, to which multiple experts have contributed. Primarily focused on U.S. educational systems, this thematically organized work starts with a general overview of gendered theories of education and moves through research, contexts and constructs, and an examination of policies….[T]his is recommended for academic libraries serving women's studies programs or graduate programs in education."


Library Journal

"Approximately 100 essays commissioned for this reference are presented in thematic sections, each introduced with an overview essay. No single definition of gender was imposed; the contributors' various interpretations of the term reflect the state of current research and show some areas where further study with gender as a focus might be useful. Indexing is thorough, by name and subject."


SciTech Booknews

"In prior decades, this work might have focused on women, but today's scholars and researchers look at the issues that surround males and females relative to educational experiences….[A] useful addition to the field."



"The editor is careful to explain in the preface that no single definition of gender was provided for the work's contributors. As a result, entries discuss the intersection of gender and education from multiple perspectives, including those of feminist, queer, multicultural, poststructural, and male theorists. The encyclopedia is divided into ten thematic sections that address how notions of gender have affected theories of education, issues in educational research, institutional contexts, the official and unofficial curriculum, measurements of achievement, teaching and administration, and educational policies. Each section begins with an overview that contextualizes the entries that follow historically and thematically. Each entry ends with a short bibliography that enables readers to explore further the topics the contributors address. One notable entry discusses useful sources of international and US data on gender and education….Recommended. Lower- and upper-level undergraduates."
