The mission of the Montgomery Center for Research in Child and Adolescent Development is to achieve a better understanding of normal and abnormal child and adolescent development,
with an emphasis on understanding the role of gender -- which means not only differences between female and male, but also variations among girls and among boys.
Currently, one of the main projects of MCRCAD is publishing Advances in Gender and Education (A.G.E.), a new peer-reviewed journal which launched in October 2009. In the words of editor Professor Margaret Ferrara,
"The topics in the journal cover a wide range of subjects including educational theory, educational
practice, and interactions between gender and race/ethnicity/SES in the classroom. The journal also opens
the door for discussions on sex differences in physiology, psychology, sociology, art and culture, and historical
perspectives on gender in education. Our hope is that a better understanding of gender influences and practices
in our education initiatives will set the stage for expanding educational and cultural horizons, as well as breaking
down gender stereotypes."
