The editors, Rollo Browne (an independent consultant to schools on boys' education) and Richard Fletcher (a leading educator in the field of male health and an advocate for boys' education) have assembled an impressive collection of writings from key practitioners of boys programs in both secondary and primary schools across Australia. Boys in Schools addresses difficulties associated with bullying, school violence, boys' underachievement, homophobia, sexism, boys' non-involvement in school life, relationships, peer culture, masculinity, gender stereotypes, identity and self-esteem. The book will be of value to teachers, parents, educationists and all those who work with and care for boys.
"'The goal of building admirable men has been much touted by schools, but rarely addressed in a concrete way. Now this is starting to change... the need for this kind of book is urgent.' Steve Biddulph"
