  Gender and achievement: evidence from Northern Ireland
Titel: Gender and achievement: evidence from Northern Ireland
Auteur: Gallagher, Tony
Verschenen in: International journal of inclusive education
Paginering: Jaargang 2 (1998) nr. 2 pagina's 155-167
Jaar: 1998-04
Inhoud: The paper examines evidence showing that the academic performance of girls in Northern Ireland has risen at a faster rate than for boys. While policy concern has tended to concentrate on religious differences, the paper suggests that this may help to create a discursive environment within which equity considerations are given more attention. Thus there has not been the same evidence of the 'moral panic' over gender differences in education and the focus on religious differences has drawn wider attention to the role of social dimensions mediating performance. The paper argues that current gender patterns are related to rising expectations among girls that can be linked to equal opportunity measures. It is not that something has gone wrong for the boys, but rather that something has gone right for the girls. As a general development this should be applauded and built upon, rather than deprecated and reversed.
