Gender, Schooling and New York City

What has been the experience of those who are experimenting with schools for specific populations? How have practitioners applied the research on the needs of boys and girls in school and with what results? This session presents some of the strategies that New York City schools have implemented in response to the research on gender, particularly as it intersects with other aspects of students' lives, like race, ethnicity, class, parental status, and sexual orientation.

Stulberg, assistant professor of educational sociology at NYU Steinhardt; Ann Rubenstein Tisch, the founder and creator of the Young Women's Leadership Schools
