Would you mind posting a compilation of people's suggestions? I'd like
to read some books in this area, but it would help a lot of us (I think)
if we had some sort of list to work from. Thanks!
Oh - a good book on gender differences in education (not quite the topic
at hand but related) is "Failing at Fairness: How America's Schools Cheat
Girls" by Myra and David Sadker. They look at nursery school up through
graduate school-aged male and female students. It's really interesting
but a little depressing.
