Our thanks to Nigel for this. He writes:
I expect a great deal of coverage of the report on racism. Yet another where the facts tell a very different story from the one usually advanced by all those in the grievance industries. However within this report is a repetition of the fact that white working class boys are right at the bottom of the educational attainment. At the end of this piece in the Daily Mail the response to this follows familiar lines, it’s been “known” for a decade but it doesn’t matter because later in life white boys make up for their poor schooling through working hard (though of course they don’t say “working hard”). Which is of course the same reason advanced by feminists for not doing anything about boys’ attainment at school and access to higher education, that boys being short changed in their schooling doesn’t matter because much later in life they catch up in earnings.
Those interested in actually addressing the welfare and education of boys should take heart from it at least being mentioned in this report. It is also one of the most important issues for those opposing feminist ideologies. Firstly because given 85% of the population is white, a lot of boys are affected. Secondly, as we have seen with backlashes to the “all boys are rapists” hysteria, mothers of boys generally don’t want them to be discriminated against. And as we know mothers occupy a particularly high status amongst those we must always listen to. And it is an inherently weak argument to suggest that bad schooling is just fine for boys because they make up for the bad experience of school and FE later in life.
Surely every child matters, even the poor white ones with penises. Framing this as “the blob” says your son’s education doesnt matter. Maybe a good way forward. And a focus on boys’ poor experience might then make public the well-documented direct discrimination against boys in teacher assessments and marking, the harsher and more widespread punishment and even the “demonisation” of boys as toxic.
