"The goal of this collection is to problematize the ordinary ways in which masculinities often escape the critical eye. The absence of a critique often stems from the assumption that masculine gender performances are similar. Thus, simplistic solutions are often applied to issues such as bullying, violence, and sexual harassment in schools with the belief, and sincere hope, that these harmful acts might be eliminated. Yet, there seems to be a recurring feeling of disillusionment when some masculine performances do not change after the practices of individuals are examined in relation to what is believed to be “boy-like” behaviour. There is a need to re-focus the issue of boys and schooling toward a more progressive social and political analysis. Rather than framing the debate within a psychological analysis, the chapters of this collection locate the investigation of boys and schooling within a long tradition of feminist scholarship, thus positioning boys and schooling in the context of gendered, social, and educational relationships."From the Preface
