How Schools Shortchange Girls: Action Guide. Strategies for Improving Gender Equity in Schools.
American Association of Univ. Women Educational Foundation, Washington, DC.
The American Association of University Women (AAUW) report, "How Schools Shortchange Girls," presents compelling evidence that girls are not receiving the same quality or even quantity of education as boys. The AAUW report is a synthesis of all the available research on the subject of girls in schools. It presents the rationale for a new and enlightened education policy to ensure that all children in the United States receive the very best schooling possible. Built around the recommendations from the AAUW report, this action guide provides community leaders with strategies for developing solutions to end gender bias in the classroom. Several propositions that address aspects of gender equity in schools are put forth, and with each a number of action strategies for achieving the proposition are suggested along with a listing of AAUW and additional resources. A complete list of AAUW and additional resources also is included. (DB)
