Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education announces its sixth issue -
Gender and Education (Volume III, Issue 2).  Check it out at

This issue considers some of the topics and controversies related to
gender and schooling.  The feature articles include Gender Equity Programs
in Urban Education: Redefining Relationships Between Funding and
Evaluation by Ginsberg, and Using Sociotransformative Constructivsm to
Unearth Gender Identity Discourses in Upper Elementary Schools by
Rodriquez & Zozakiewicz.  The Commentaries provide a review of literature
on the challenges of teaching African American male students, and a
of two qualitative studies conducted with a group of African American
in an urban school district.  Articles in The Notes From the Field section
up issues of teaching as a feminized profession, black femininity read in a
text, and supports for "queer and questioning" youth.  In addition, you can
book and movie reviews of recently released texts related to gender and
education in our Reviews section.
