“Lads and Ladettes in School caused me to reflect on the unfortunate ways in which recent research on gender and schooling, which relies on the theory of hegemonic masculinities, has been interpreted by politicians and policy-makers concerned with boys' underachievement. This book reminds us of the challenges we face in applying lessons from research. It also highlights a pressing need to focus more broadly on the social goals of education and to rethink the notion of success for all”

Audrey Osler, Professor of education: University of Leeds (TES Book Review: October, 2006)

“A lively and engaging discussion that will be relevant to A level students or useful for enrichment for GCSE. Well pitched in tone and language to suit students and encourage discussion and debate.”
