  • The Historiography of Gender and Progressive Education in the United States

    1/1/06 - Weiler, Kathleen

    This article examines the feminist historiography of the progressive education movement over the past 25 years using the Foucauldian conception of genealogy and the theoretical approach of critical feminism. Gender has largely been ignored as a significant category of historical analysis in the historiography of progressive education in the United States. The defining history of progressive education in the United States is still Lawrence Cremin’s 1961 work, The Transformation of the...

Theories on childhood gender socialization are addressed using OLS and logistic regression models to test for gendered pathways through...

  • Academic Performance Gap Between Summer-Birthday and Fall-Birthday Children in Grades K-8

    1/1/06 - Oshima, T. C., Domaleski, Christopher S.

    Much interest exists among parents and researchers regarding the benefits and drawbacks of delaying kindergarten entrance to acquire academic advantage ("redshirting"). How evident is this assumed advantage at the kindergarten level and beyond? The authors evaluated largescale test data from Grades K-8 to investigate the difference in performance between younger children (summer birthday) and older children (fall birthday). The performance gap evident in kindergarten decreased rapidly in...

  • AFRICAN AMERICAN PARENTS IN THE SEARCH STAGE OF COLLEGE CHOICE

    1/1/06 - Smith, Michael J., Fleming, Michael K.

    A serious imbalance exists in today's African American undergraduate student population in which the number of women far outnumber the number of men. Although at the macro level, political, sociological, and economic forces frame this gender enrollment gap, scant research has explored microlevel influences such as parents and parenting. This study uses a qualitative methodology and Hossler's model of college choice to examine African American parent involvement during the search stage. The...

  • Are gifted girls motivationally disadvantaged? Review, reflection, and redirection

    1/1/02 - Dai, David Yun

    Over the past 2 decades, much research on gifted girls has revolved around the issue of whether they, compared to gifted boys, are motivationally disadvantaged in achievement settings. While research and anecdotal evidence seems to support this hypothesis, most recent educational statistics show the closing of the gender gap. In this article, the literature is reviewed and critiqued as to the existence of alleged gender differences, as well as task and social conditions, and putative...

    Are there differences in achievement between boys and girls?

    1/2/10 - Center on Education Policy,

    "Disparities between boys and girls in reading and mathematics achievement have long been a concern among educators. While the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) does not hold school systems directly accountable for making adequate yearly progress (AYP) for the male and female subgroups, as it does for racial/ethnic and other subgroups, the Act does require states and school districts to publicly report test results broken down by gender. These requirements to disaggregate and publicize test...

  • Closing of the gender gap in technology enriched science education: a case study

    1/1/00 - Mayer-Smith, Jolie, Pedretti, Erminia, Woodrow, Janice

    This case study explores a popular assertion, namely that success in technology enriched science classrooms is gender dependent. We investigate how students respond to substantive changes that accompany a comprehensive integration of technology with the teaching and learning of secondary science and physics. Specifically, we ask: (1) Do female students view, participate, and achieve differently than male students in technology enhanced science classrooms? and, (2) If not, why not? Empirical...

  • Combating gender disparity in education: guidelines for early childhood educators

    Researchers have noted that gender inequity exists in early school settings. This inequity is apparent in student-teacher interactions, student-student interactions, and children's literature. Suggestions to help current or prospective teachers combat gender inequity in early elementary classrooms via nonbiased literature, nonbiased play, and nonbiased curriculum are provided, and an assessment of nonbiased curriculum is offered.
