Gender and Education discusses the impact of education on women and people of color at the intersection of gender, race, class, culture, and political and generational variables. The book explores how the languages of gender and equity can be understood beyond the assignment of categories or academic success.

Students will learn about the passage of Title IX and its subsequent backlash, the social control of sexuality, and the fallacy of the achievement gap. They will consider the role of gender in bullying and victimization, students athletes' free speech rights, and women's underrepresentation in the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. They will examine topics such as affirmative action in higher education, social media in the classroom, and question whether today's charter schools truly represent educational reform.

Gender and Education directly challenges egalitarian notions of education by questioning whether today's educational system adequately reflects and responds to issues of gender, race, sexual orientation, and more. The questions it raises are worthy of consideration in any course on education, gender studies, and race and diversity in the classroom.
