Originally published in 1989. This book addresses a number of issues integral to the education of girls in Australia. Among these are: teacher practices inside and outside the classroom, co-education versus single-sex schooling, curriculum design, students' self-esteem and long-term aspirations. Intervention programs which tackle these issues - in mathematics, science and sport - are described and evaluated. Throughout, the collection functions as a meeting ground for practice and current research.
