What About the Girls?

What About the Girls? | What's up in education? | Scoop.it

“… when we teach girls, most of us note how much more diligent, compliant and measured they are. They study better, are less disruptive and can manage their work and time better.

I have no doubt that we need to be doing more for boys in our classrooms, but I now also believe we need to be doing more for girls too…”
