What are the politics of gender within education? How are the issues of gender being explored in diverse educational settings? Does gender still matter in education? This book draws together the work from an international array of authors working at the cutting edge of gender research in education. From policy issues affecting single mothers to the incorporation of 'Southern learning' into Northern contexts, this collection provides a compelling argument for renewed engagement with gender issues at both macro and micro political levels within the full range of educational contexts - from primary to higher education.
