520    Gender Gaps - Where Schools Still Fail Our Children 
       directly addresses the conflict between the standards 
       movement and the pursuit to educational equity - the most 
       hotly debated topic in schools today and of concern to all
       parents of school-aged children. On the eve of the 21st 
       century, what progress have we made? What gaps still need 
       to be addressed? How are technological advances and 
       profound shifts in school demographics changing the way we
       teach? Most importantly, do new approaches to teaching and
       learning benefits both girls and boys? Gender Gaps 
       confirms that public schools are making progress toward 
       equitable treatment of boys and girls. Nevertheless, high 
       academic standards for all students cannot be realized 
       without equity. Equity differs from equality in asking not
       whether girls and boys receive the same education but 
       whether they receive the right education to achieve a 
       shared standard of excellence.
