Originally published in 1974. This final volume in the trilogy is concerned primarily with comparing the academic progress made by pupils of near-equal ability in the two types of school. It considers attainment in different subjects but also attitudes to different subjects and then follows up with a study of university students from both types of school background.

Reissuing works originally published between 1945 and 1998, this collection of books on the intersection of gender and education looks at various issues within schools and teaching, from careers of primary school teachers to the experience of single-sex schools, to adult learning provision for women. Some of the books included here look at research undertaken into the issues of gender within education while others consider an individual aspect, such as the education of women in developing countries, or the construction of masculinity. This set offers a wide spread of coverage on a key topic in education.
