Gender and Education

This research for the DCSF summarises current statistics on the participation and attainment of boys and girls from Reception to Sixth Form. The paper focuses primarily on gender differences of school-aged pupils and tries to put the gender debate in context by examining the extent of the gender gap and discussing the role of gender in education alongside the role of other pupil characteristics, particularly social class and ethnicity.
