Gender Equity: A Critical Democratic Component of America's High Schools.
Schmuck, Patricia A.; Schmuck, Richard A.
NASSP Bulletin, v78 n558 p22-31 Jan 1994
Two recent reports show girls' performance in math and verbal skills is lower than boys' and that the gap steadily increases during the high school years. Girls' self-esteem also erodes during late adolescence. An extensive study of small-town high schools disclosed glaring gender inequities and lack of principal awareness. Principals must eliminate overt and subtle discriminatory attitudes and practices. (MLH)
