Ablin's new book The Gender Equation in Schools: How to Create Equity and Fairness for All Students explores gender bias in schools and how it impacts our best efforts to educate children. Learn how to facilitate faculty-wide conversations around gender, write learning reports without gender bias, use student assessments to check gendered attitudes about learning, and more. As a teacher, administrator, DEI director, or homeschooling parent, you’ll be ready to embark upon your own journey to balance the gender equation and create greater equity for all of your students.
