Schools Ethos and the Construction of Masculine Identity: Do Schools Create, Condone and Sustain Aggression?
Carter, Charlotte
Educational Review, v54 n1 p27-36 Feb 2002
An action research project in a British boys' school found the dominant school ethos to include an authoritarian style and an expectation of predetermined masculinity. The ethos was maintained by explicit and implicit encouragement of aggressive behavior. Students exhibited low self-esteem, deficit interpersonal skills, nonparticipation, and disaffection.
