Sandretto, Susan; Nairn, Karen – Gender and Education, 2019
Educationalists lament the resilience of the so-called 'boy crisis', despite research that demonstrates only some boys are in crisis, as well as some girls.

Pullman, Ashley – Gender and Education, 2015
This paper examines Canadian federal and cross-provincial higher education policy from 1960 to 1990, a critical time when provisions for vocational and adult training came under the auspices of governmental concern, justified under both an economic rationale and as a way to address persistent forms of inequality.

Burman, Erica – Gender and Education, 2011
The task of re-evaluating the legacy of Susan Isaacs is a complex one.

As a contemporary to some of…

Grummell, Bernie; Devine, Dympna; Lynch, Kathleen – Gender and Education, 2009

As higher education is especially subject to performance…

In discussing an unpublished document of educational policy written by Sylvia Pankhurst in 1959 the context of its writing should be considered as well as the political, historical and cultural changes that have occurred between the historical moment of its writing and the conditions of its contemporary reception. Pankhurst's educational policy…
