Boys’ educational achievements - or the lack of them - is a topical concern to government policy-makers and teachers alike. Every local education authority which responded to a request from the EMIE service for information on the topic reported that boys’ standards of achievement fell below those of girls.
This report - which was originally commissioned by the Education Department of Islington Borough Council - reviews the recent literature on the topic.
