Abstract

Where the Girls Are: The Facts About Gender Equity in Education makes clear that girls’ gains have not come at the expense of boys. In addition, the report goes beyond gender
to look at other factors that influence student achievement—specifically family income level and race/ethnicity—and finds that many girls as well as boys are not acquiring the educational skills needed to succeed in the 21st-century economy. This report illustrates that while educational trends for both girls and boys are generally positive, disparities
by race/ethnicity and family income level exist and are critical to understanding the landscape of education in America today.
