The first "Genderwatch" was published twenty years ago for teachers and school leaders who wanted to do something about discriminatory practices in their schools but were not quite sure what. This entirely new edition, designed to coincide with the Gender Equality Duty legislation coming into force in 2007, aims to help the same professional group. Times have changed but significant differences in children's schooling experiences persist - depending on who they are. "Genderwatch: Still Watching..." focuses on gender difference, while also taking account of the diversity of children's backgrounds and heritages. This comprehensive handbook contains 60 schedules covering all aspects of school life and all phases from preschool to secondary. They examine whole school issues such as the new legislation; leadership; inclusion; what happens in assemblies; working with boys; working with girls; how to ensure that when young people's views are sought all are heard; plus detailed accounts of how to enhance equality in each curriculum subject. Each schedule will help schools addresses their gender equality issues through reviewing practice, tackling inequalities and monitoring outcomes so they can meet their statutory obligations. "Genderwatch: Still Watching..." is essential reading for teachers, school leaders, support staff, governors, inspectors, advisers and consultants - in fact for anyone who wants to improve equality of opportunity in schools.
