I debate Susan McGee Bailey, the author of the 1992 paper from AAUW arguing that schools are shortchanging girls (not boys). That’s the study that got me started on Why Boys Fail. I wrote that up uncritically -- by hindsight, big mistake.

Education Next went all out. They have a book excerpt, with me reading, and a video.
