Some brief overview of book

From the moment they step into the classroom, boys begin to struggle. They get expelled from preschool nearly five times more often than girls; in elementary school, theyre diagnosed with learning disorders four times as often. By eighth grade huge numbers are reading below basic level.

And by high school, theyre heavily outnumbered in AP classes and, save for the realm of athletics, show indifference to most extracurricular activities. Perhaps most alarmingly, boys now account for less than 43 percent of those enrolled in college, and the gap widens every semester! The imbalance in higher education isnt just a "boy problem," though.

Boys decreasing college attendance is bad news for girls, too, because admissions officers seeking balanced student bodies pass over girls in favor of boys. The growing gender imbalance in education portends massive shifts for the next generation how much they make and whom they marry. Interviewing hundreds of parents, kids, teachers, and experts, award-winning journalist Peg Tyre drills below the eye-catching statistics to examine how the educational system is failing our sons.

She explores the convergence of culprits, from the emphasis on high-stress academics in preschool and kindergarten, when most boys just cant tolerate sitting still, to the outright banning of recess, from the demands of No Child Left Behind, with its rigid emphasis on test-taking, to the boy-unfriendly modern curriculum with its focus on writing about "feelings" and its purging of "high-action" reading material, from the rise of video gaming and schools unease with technology to the lack of male teachers as role models. But this passionate, clearheaded book isn_25E2_2580_2599t an exercise in finger-pointing. Tyre, the 0D3F6DA449
