Boys Against Girls

The class gets a new homeroom teacher and he is as sexist as they can possibly come. Right off he calls on boys and not girls; assigns girls clean-up tasks; separates the boys and the girls in the class physically and even ends up taking all the girls off the baseball team, even though some of them are far better players than the boys.

The girls in the room, along with Jessica and Elizabeth, all work up different ideas to try to make him pay attention to them and treat them equally, including one where an observer is treated to a display by the girls that makes him chastise the teacher. It finally comes down to the baseball championship of the sixth grade before he realizes his mistake.

A good book.
