This article summarizes a recent UNESCO report  (69 page PDF) on eliminating gender inequality in schools. It says some things that are hard to say in an international context. For example, "we will not achieve gender equality in education unless we challenge harmful social norms about women's role in society." And "countries must make sure they are building education systems with gender equality in mind. This includes addressing school-related gender-based violence in schools, providing comprehensive sexuality education."
