Rich Schools, Poor Schools, Boys and Girls: Computer Education in Australian Secondary Schools.
Hickling-Hudson, Anne
Journal of Education Policy, v7 n1 p1-21 Jan-Mar 1992
Discusses results of an Australian study showing how wealthy schools use their greater material and human resources to establish a relatively sophisticated computer education culture, compared with poorer schools. Students from well-off families, especially boys, benefit by being prepared for elite jobs. Educators committed to equity must be mindful of such discrepancies to address inequality issues.
