A look at gender equality in the British school system, with an emphasis on current conditions and how they were reached, with a strong focus on the implementation of the Sex Discrimination Act during 1975-6. The first section concentrates on national initiatives, the second on local level activities, (three different local education authorities are examined), later sections discuss various projects enacted around the country, and other aspects of inequality in schools, including racial considerations, and how they tie into gender. Special attention is given to boys, and why their achievement has fallen behind their female counterparts. Annotation copyrighted by Book News Inc., Portland, OR
