Our thanks to Jeff for this. An extract:
The education system, just like society at large, is loaded against boys and in favour of girls.
From teachers favouring girls when children raise their hands in class to suggesting that any boy who exhibits curiosity or sensitivity must have something wrong with him, boys are demeaned from the moment they put on their uniforms and enter the school gates.
Little wonder that the attainment gap between boys and girls has become a chasm. A girl born today is 75 per cent more likely than a boy to proceed to higher education, while young men enter the adult world more unsure of themselves than ever.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
