Boys vs. Girls

Boys vs. Girls | Elementary Technology | Scoop.it

by David Leonhardt

 

"The behavior gap between rich and poor children, starting at very early ages, is now a well-known piece of social science. Entering kindergarten, high-income children not only know more words and can read better than poorer children but they also have longer attention spans, better-controlled tempers and more sensitivity to other children.

 

"All of which makes the comparisons between boys and girls in the same categories fairly striking: The gap in behavioral skills between young girls and boys is even bigger than the gap between rich and poor.

 

"By kindergarten, girls are substantially more attentive, better behaved, more sensitive, more persistent, more flexible and more independent than boys, according to a new paper from Third Way, a Washington research group. The gap grows over the course of elementary school and feeds into academic gaps between the sexes. By eighth grade, 48 percent of girls receive a mix of A’s and B’s or better. Only 31 percent of boys do."

At home, we have many people who have time out where a kids is forced to sit and be quiet. So at school they have to do the same thing in some cases. It is a natural for kids to be active in their learning. Sadly some people can't handle student activity in the classroom. Shame.
