Summary "Girls' Voices describes the initiatives taken in six Newham schools to give girls space to discuss their problems, develop their personal and communication skills and improve their learning, listening to them all along the way. In all six schools, the girls' attendance and performance improved. What the schools did - and what the girls say about these special provisions and events - offers models and guidance for all schools who are educating girls."--BOOK JACKET
