Ball, Stephen J.; Gewirtz, Sharon

Considers the role of girls' schools in the United Kingdom education market and the positioning and "value" of girls by examining the workings of market forces in education. It reveals that current conditions of competition offer some advantages to girls but that these advantages have to be set against the continuing contradictions and oppressions of single-sex schooling.
