The Boys at the Back

The Boys at the Back | Dropout Prevention, Poverty  and Disproportionality | Scoop.it
Boys are being left behind in educational advancement. We need to address the reasons.
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

Don't even get me started.......

 

I am reminded of a great quote from an article I read yesterday:  http://www.scoop.it/t/disproportionality-in-schools/p/3995865537/i-used-to-think

 

 

 

I used to think that some kids weren’t cut out for school. They were lazy, unmotivated, and not “academic,” as if being academic was the most important thing in the world. Now I’ve come to realize that it’s the cutout school that’s the problem. Kids love to learn and do it quite naturally. They just might not be buying what I’m selling.

 

The cutout school run mostly by women, is part of the problem.  They aren't buying what we are selling.
