Description - Answering Back by Jill Blackmore
Try to apply feminist policies and ideas in staffrooms and what happens? What do girls, boys and teachers do when feminists try to change them and their schools? How do they feel? Are they in trouble or do they make trouble? This book exposes the volatility of gender reform in many different schools and classrooms. It tells stories in close up and from below, allowing everyone to talk: anxious boys, naughty girls, cantankerous teachers, pontificating principals and feisty feminists. This book challenges many ideas about gender reform in schools and should surprise and unsettle teachers and researchers. It draws on a deep knowledge of gender issues in schools and of feminist theories, policies and practices.
