WHERE THE BOYS ARE: Do Cross-Gender Misunderstandings of Language Use and Behavior Patterns Contribute to the Overrepresentation of Males in Programs for Students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders?
McIntyre, Tom; Tong, Virginia
Education and Treatment of Children, v21 n3 p321-32 Aug 1998
Discusses how cross-gender misunderstanding can affect the educational process and can result in boys being mislabeled as emotionally and/or behaviorally disordered for displaying strong traditional male behavioral patterns. The tendency for boys to challenge authority and to display aggression is examined, along with the overrepresentation of boys in special education. (CR)
