    Gender and Education discusses the impact of education on women and people of color at the intersection of gender, race, class, culture, and political and generational variables. The book explores how the languages of gender and equity can be understood beyond the assignment of categories or academic success.

    Students learn about the passage of Title IX and its subsequent backlash, social control within schools, the relationship between bulling and discrimination in schools, students’ free speech rights, and women's underrepresentation in the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. They examine topics such as affirmative action in higher education, online education, and whether today's charter schools truly represent educational reform.

    The second edition features new readings on the topics of queer pedagogy, reproduction theory and the gender status quo, bullying and discrimination in early childhood, race and gender disparity in urban education, interdisciplinary women’s and gender students, the impact of sexual orientation and gender expression bias on African-American students, academic capitalism, and the role of social media in higher education.

    Gender and Education is an ideal resources for courses in education, gender studies, and race and diversity in the classroom.
