Topic Details
We’re so used to celebrating the advancement of girls and women and the dismantling of our sexist history, that few of us are noticing a new trend.  Boys, who traditionally trailed girls until high school, are now trailing at all levels of academic achievement.

-Lowell High School, which is San Francisco’s only Competitive Admissions Magnet High School and accepts only the top Middle School Students, is 60.2% female and 39.8% male.

-Women are now earning 61% of Bachelor’s Degrees, 63% of Master’s Degrees, 58% of PhD Degrees and 58% of Professional Degrees. 

-Top rated Universities are seeing a lower percentage of males admitted.

-Why are girls so much more focused on school than boys are throughout middle school, high school and college?  What can we do to help more boys thrive in middle and high school?  Should schools change instruction to include more hands-on projects or make other changes to help boys reach their potential?  How will it impact society in the future if boys are not getting the education they need to have good careers and income?
