The Office for Standards in Education has commissioned a report from Cambridge Department of Education on research confirming or challenging the widely-reported differences in boys' and girls' performances. The team would welcome copies of reports by teachers, teams of local inspectors and advisers, and higher education staff working with schools and LEAs. Of particular interest are school-based initiatives designed to change these trends, and any procedures which support the regular monitoring of data. Address: Dr Evelyn Arizpe, Department of Education, 17 Trumpington Street, Cambridge CB2 1QA, tel: 01223 332888.
