The Politics of Policy in Boys' Education: Getting Boys "Right"
Weaver-Hightower, Marcus B.
This book explores boy-focused education policy and how different educators struggle to implement or resist it in their schools. Weaver-Hightower examines masculinity politics in Australia and the United States, mapping how these politics create panic over raising and educating boys the "Right" way. Contextualizing this policy with movements for boys' education around the world, this book offers progressive strategies for resisting conservative, regressive, anti-feminist programs for boys. [Foreword by Michael W. Apple.]
