For many years, gender equity has pertained primarily to improving education and career opportunities for females. Recent studies, however, provide evidence that boys no longer hold an advantage. Based on extensive analysis of data from the National Longitudinal Study, the High School & Beyond, and the National Education Longitudinal Study, it was concluded that there is no evidence for a one-way gender gap favoring males beyond 1992 in public secondary schools. This digest presents a brief overview of recent research on trends in gender differences in both the K-12 and postsecondary levels of education and offers suggestions for actions that counselors and counselor educators can take to help ensure that all students' educational and developmental needs are met.
