Abstract

"Disparities between boys and girls in reading and mathematics achievement have long been a concern among educators. While the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) does not hold school systems directly accountable for making adequate yearly progress (AYP) for the male and female subgroups, as it does for racial/ethnic and other subgroups, the Act does require states and school districts to publicly report test results broken down by gender. These requirements to disaggregate and publicize test data for males and females signal a continuing national interest in monitoring and narrowing gender gaps in achievement. This report by the Center on Education Policy, an independent nonprofit organization, looks at the achievement of boys and girls on the state reading and mathematics tests used for NCLB accountability."
