Whatever Happened to Equal Opportunities in Schools? is an edited book which makes an important contribution to the current debate about equal opportunities. Today the dominant concern is about boys' achievement but it was not alway thus! Contributors trace events relating to schools since the introduction of the Sex Discrimination Act and the establishment of the Equal Opportunities Commission in the mid seventies. Prior to the advent of the National Curriculum it was common practice for boys and girls to take different subjects and be offered very different opportunities and experience through the overt and covert school curriculum. Initiatives emerging from central government, quangos, trade unions, local education authorities, and individual schools are described. The book discusses how much has really changed, the extent to which credit should be given to earlier initiatives concerned with the raising of girls aspirations and achievement, what can we learn from these initiatives and what we should really be concerned about now. The book also addresses the question of boys achievement both past and present and will be important reading for all educators with an interest in promoting gender equality in schools.

Lemar Jackson ist 14 Jahre alt, und obwohl er nur der Zweitkleinste in seinem Jahrgang ist, nennen ihn, zu seinem großen Missfallen, alle »Liccle Bit«. Jonah und McKay sind seine besten Freunde, und dennoch ziehen sie ihn ständig damit auf, dass er keine Chancen bei Mädchen hat. Erst recht nicht bei Venetia King, dem heißesten Mädchen der Schule. Umso erstaunter sind alle, als Venetia ihn bittet, ein Porträt von ihr zu zeichnen. Ist das etwa ein erstes Date? Doch auch Manjaro, der berüchtigte Anführer der Gang von South Crongton, beginnt auf einmal, sich für ihn zu interessieren, und bevor Lemar sich versieht, erledigt er kleine Aufträge für ihn. Als der erste Tote im Viertel auftaucht, erkennt Lemar, dass er schon viel zu tief in dem eskalierenden Bandenkrieg steckt und so auf keinen Fall weitermachen kann. Aber wie soll er seinen Kopf aus der Schlinge ziehen, die sich immer weiter zuschnürt?
