Description - Gender Consciousness and Privilege by Celeste M. Brody
This text offers a framework for understanding the role of gender in education. Based on the results of a two year study of three schools undergoing major organizational changes as they prepared for coeducation, it promotes understanding of the role gender plays in influencing change in a high school. The book focuses on the impact of education on both sexes, placing responsibility for creating gender-fair environments on how educators organise their work and how they create environments for learning. The authors examine how assumptions about gender and male privilege are embedded in the culture, the curriculum, the interpersonal interactions inside and outside the classroom, and the psychology of the students.
