520    This volume of "International Perspectives on Education 
       and Society"investigates the often controversial 
       relationship between gender, equality and education from 
       international and comparative perspectives. Much has been 
       written recently about the global progress made toward 
       gender parity in enrolment and curriculum in nations 
       around the world. And there is much to tout in these 
       areas. Although gender parity is not yet the global norm, 
       the expectation of gender equality increasingly is. Some 
       have gone so far as to say that the global expansion of 
       modern mass schooling has created a worldculture of gender
       equality in education. Yet, while there have been many 
       positive advances regarding girls' and women's education 
       around the world, there are still significant differences 
       that are institutionalized in the policies and 
       administrative structures of national education systems. 
       For example, some of the strongest evidence of gendered 
       inequality in schooling is the fact that in manydeveloping
       countries there are large proportions of school-age 
       children who are not in school - many ifnot most of whom 
       are girls. The question this volume investigates is 
       whether gender equality in education isreally being 
       achieved in schools around the world or not
