Boys And The Education Gender-Gap
Newsweek has a thorough article about boys under-achieving in education. They offer several potential reasons for this: the biololgical difference between boy's and girl's brains and that education systems focus on learning that favors girls; "misguided" feminism that put lots of attention in the 1990s to closing the education gender gap by focusing on girls, but leaving boys behind; and the effects of a generation of boys who are growing up without biological fathers present or male-mentors of any kind.
