This report is an analysis and synthesis of more than 1,200 research studies on girls and boys in U.S. public elementary and secondary schools. It was a joint publication of the AAUW Educational Foundation and National Education Association by the Center for Research on Women at Wellesley College, now the Wellesley Centers for Women. The report provided impartial data on the ways that U.S. schools were failing to meet the needs of girls and offered clear strategies to make change.
