Where Girls Come First

Where Girls Come First Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Twenty years ago, all-girls schools seemed headed for extinction, a minor footnote in the story of American education. Today, they are experiencing a dramatic revival. In Where Girls Come First, Ilana DeBare interweaves the first complete history of girls' schools in America with her own personal story of cofounding an all-girls school in Oakland, California, in 1999. A chronicle of daily life at girls' schools over the past two hundred years, DeBare's book also illuminates the strong convictions of parents and educators that have fueled the rise of new all-girls schools throughout the country. It is an important contribution to the current debate on single-sex education in America.

Synopsis:

This rich history of girls' schools in America takes an illuminating look at the strong convictions of parents and educators that have fueled the wave of all-new girls' schools that have been cropping up across the country.

About the Author

Ilana DeBare helped found the Julia Morgan School for Girls in Oakland, California. She is formerly a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle and The Sacramento Bee.
