Failing at Fairness

How America's Schools Cheat Girls

Failing at Fairness

Failing at Fairness, the result of two decades of research, shows how gender bias makes it impossible for girls to receive an education equal to that given to boys.

  • Girls' learning problems are not identified as often as boys' are

  • Boys receive more of their teachers' attention

  • Girls start school testing higher in every academic subject, yet graduate from high school scoring 50 points lower than boys on the SAT

Hard-hitting and eye-opening, Failing at Fairness should be read by every parent, especially those with daughters.
