Do you believe boys learn differently than girls? This recent article seems right on point with the problems boys are experiencing – but what about the suggested solutions?
In cutting to the chase, Lon Woodbury asked today’s guest on his Internet Talk Radio Show: “Parent Choices for Struggling Teens” on LATalkRadio, “What is the status of boys today?” In response, Kelley King, Associate Director of Gurian Institute, shared an amazing list of considerable gaps that today’s boys are facing in education and learning. These gaps include: significant reading gaps, higher discipline reports, substance abuse, more D’s and F’s for boy’s, more drop-outs and a significant drop in enrollment in college (with girls at 60% and boys at 40%).
