Challenging Masculinities: Disability and Achievement in Testing Times.
Benjamin, Shereen
Gender and Education, v13 n1 p39-55 Mar 2001
Describes a feminist project on masculinities involving boys in a special education school. These labeled, segregated boys were invested in achieving successful positioning within a culture of hegemonic masculinity. Institutional and media preoccupations with quantifiable academic attainments had reinscribed them within a world of hetero/sexist boyishness where their only hope of success was in proving themselves as macho soccer stars.
