Studies of masculinity have been largely absent from educational research. This book presents a collection of current critical scholarship on the creation of masculinities in schools.

Contributors examine experiences in North American, Australian and British schools at all levels from preschool to graduation, and from school settings such as computer labs to the football field. The result is a thoughtful analysis of how masculinities are related to competing definitions of masculinity and femininity. The chapters show how masculinities are constructed among teachers, students and administrators, and locates these analyses within broader social, economic and ideological contexts.
