Bryan, Jennifer – Independent School, 2017
Given how pervasively political, cultural, educational, and religious institutions are built on a foundation of stereotypes and binary assumptions, it is easy to understand why people find the current reassessment of all things gender disquieting and disruptive. The consequences of this upheaval can be found in all corners of pre-K-12 schooling,…

Whereas scholarship on the book has explored a wide range of issues including sex,…
