Summary In many schools today, boys are trouble -- and of great concern to parents and teachers. Schools face serious, daily problems with boys' behaviour and attitudes which reduce the quality of education for girls and boys. The need for boys to change is crucial -- but how can it be done? Boys in Schools presents accounts which show how innovative approaches used in schools can change the way boys view themselves and others. The editors, Rollo Browne (an independent consultant to schools on boys' education) and Richard Fletcher (a leading educator in the field of male health and an advocate for boys' education) have assembled an impressive collection of writings from key practitioners of boys programs in both secondary and primary schools across Australia. Boys in Schools addresses difficulties associated with bullying, school violence, boys' underachievement, homophobia, sexism, boys' non-involvement in school life, relationships, peer culture, masculinity, gender stereotypes, identity and self-esteem. The book will be of value to teachers, parents, educationists and all those who work with and care for boys.
