Once again the issue of gender is in the news, following the publication of a new government report entitled Gender and Education: the Evidence on Pupils in England. The media have mainly picked up on the report's observation that recruiting more male teachers will not necessarily result in improved school performance from boys, although the document actually takes a very detailed look at all aspects of gender in education.

On a different note, I've added a new tool to this page to make it a little more interactive. In the right-hand column you should see a poll asking for your opinion. To kick this off, the first question is about the recent reorganisation of the government's education departments (see below for details) - is this a good or bad thing for children's services? Click to register your vote, polls close next Friday...
