This week: Gender and education

This week, millions of American girls will don princess costumes on Halloween. Yet with the exception of the Princess Wars, gender doesn't get much attention in education.

This week I'll write on the most striking educational trend of the last few decades - the growing female advantage in educational achievement and attainment - and discuss what's changed, and what hasn't.

: Girls and Math

: More Girls=More Laerning? The Effects of Gender Composition

: The Female Edge in Completing College
