In many ways, we're in an age of gender equity: after all, a female justice is poised to ascend to the supreme court, and women both begin and complete college at higher rates than men. But when it comes to tests and schools, some problems remain. Consider the stereotype that girls don't do as well as boys in math: the mere reminder of it can be a self-fulfilling prophecy for girls facing a math test. Some local girls schools are turning that around and turning their students into scientists. Join us Tuesday morning at 9, for lessons we all can learn from girls schools.

Guests

Lisa Damour Co-Director, Center For Research on Girls
Ann Klotz Head of School, Laurel School
