A recent study of the educational attainment of British children found that boys who live in poverty are more educationally disadvantaged even than girls in similar circumstances (Mensah and Kiernan, 2010). The author’s recent work in the south Wales ex-mining valleys has brought her into contact with boys who are disaffected from school and who fit the profile of potential NEETs (not in education, employment or training). In this article the author explores changes in the social perceptions of working class youth, changes in the school curricula aimed at re-engaging working class boys and recent work in gender studies.
