Examines enrollment rate differences between boys and girls by subject area in California’s middle schools and high schools, and sets these differences against a background of labor market outcomes for men and women. Also investigates female-male enrollment disparities according to school setting (urban, suburban, and rural) as well as racial and ethnic status.
