Summary In addressing the issue of male underachievement, the book challenges the popularly held assumption that boys fail because girls achieve. Rather than blaming Caribbean females for male underachievement, the book locates male educational performance in the historical context of Caribbean gender identities. UNICEF and the Institute of Social and Economic Research funded the research on gender and Caribbean high school achievement upon which this book is based. Parry discusses key findings in the areas of gender expectations, verbal discipline, male role models, coeducation vs. single-sex schools, gender socialization, and sex/gender identity development.
