"In education, 'What works?' is rarely the right question, for the simple reason that in education, just about everything works somewhere, and nothing works everywhere.” Dylan William, 2016

Featuring keynote addresses by leading educational researchers and thought leaders, this conference will challenge some commonly accepted educational views. Participate in workshops and share best practice about what really works for boys.

Bucking the Trend targets teachers and school leaders committed to learning more about the best practices for boys’ learning. Presentations and workshops will generate informed reflection and discussion about boys’ education. To maximize impact and deepen learning, we encourage educators to attend as school teams.
