'Lads' and 'ladettes' in school: Gender and a fear of failure.

Research output: Book/Report/ProceedingsBook


Bibliographic note

This book was awarded first prize for books published in 2006 by the Society of Educational Studies. It explores 'laddish' behaviours amongst 13-14 year old boys and girls. Theoretically, it draws largely on work in social psychology and sociology. Empirically, it draws on data from two funded projects (Nuffield Foundation and ESRC). These data include 203 pupil interviews (from eight schools), 30 teacher interviews (from six schools), and questionnaire data from approximately 800 pupils (from six schools). The book has attracted substantial media interest (both newspaper and radio), and has been featured in The Daily Mail, more than ten regional papers, and numerous magazines, for example, In the Know. In addition, it was featured as 'book of the week' in the Times Educational Supplement (13/10/06), and was the sole subject of a 5-page article in the new Times Educational Supplement Magazine (01/12/06).
