Feminization of Schools
Mulvey, Janet D.
School Administrator, v66 n8 p34-36 Sep 2009
The evidence is clear: America's boys are being left behind by current practices in the classroom. Statistically, they are performing less well than they were 10 years ago. Boys are dropping out of high schools in significant numbers, failing to complete college degrees and behaving more violently. Thus, the author presents some possible solutions on what school administrators can do to continue supporting girls while beginning to help boys re-engage in learning.
