An avalanche of recent newspapers, weekly newsmagazines, scholarly journals, and academic books has helped to spark a heated debate by publishing warnings of a “boy crisis” in which male students at all academic levels have begun falling behind their female peers. In Learning the Hard Way, Edward W. Morris explores and analyzes detailed ethnographic data on this purported gender gap between boys and girls in educational achievement at two low-income high schools—one rural and predominantly white, the other urban and mostly African American. Crucial questions arose from his study of gender at these two schools. Why did boys tend to show less interest in and more defiance toward school? Why did girls significantly outperform boys at both schools?...

I’m delighted that a new generation will be exposed to these principles through Learning the Hard Way.” —Tom Russell Dean Emeritus, Grady College Success stories. Career advice. These are the usual topics in graduation speeches, yet in May 1988, Ron Scharbo took a different route when speaking to UGA’s Grady College graduates.
