Issues in boys’ education: encouraging broader definitions of masculinity in schools

Wayne Martino
Dr Wayne Martino is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Western Ontario, Canada
Wayne Martino suggests that the problems boys experience in schools are more likely due to restrictive notions of masculinity than to disadvantage, and that schools should assist boys in understanding the effects that narrow social constructions of gender have on their expectations, lives and relationships.
