''Boys' achievement has attracted great attention in recent years in many countries. This comprehensive book based on sound research in schools provides practical insights into how the achievement of boys and girls can be raised. It reminds us that it is not all boys or no girls who underachieve. It demonstrates the respective roles of teaching and learning, school culture and social factors. No easy answers but excellent ideas backed by evidence from authoritative, thorough researchers with a firm basis in schools.'' - Judy Sebba, Professor of Education, University of Sussex. ''Teachers will find this book invaluable. It is based on quality research, which actually evaluates the impact of the various strategies suggested for raising boys' achievement. What is more, in contrast to many of the more 'quick-fix' works in this field, the authors' discussion and analysis is measured and nuanced, and supported by an in-depth understanding of the wealth of theory and research around gender and achievement. It provides a welcome and weighty contribution to an ever controversial debate.'' - Becky Francis, London Metropolitan University.
