This document is designed for use by educators from all phases and stages of schooling. It aims to identify and dispel some of the current and unhelpful myths about gender and education and to counter them with an evidence-based rationale.

It could be used in a variety of ways and contexts but it might be most productively used as a vehicle for opening up dialogue about gender issues in education with teachers and other school staff, trainees and pupils.
