War on Boys

War on Boys

Very interesting conversation.

I began thinking of this at my daughters Grade 8 Graduation back in June. I would say that 90% of the awards went to Grade 8 girls. There were some guys who got awards for Athletics. There were (if I remember correct) 2 boys who got Academic awards. The rest of the awards went to girls. I don’t think any boys got Citizenship or Arts awards at all. Check out this video. Love to hear peoples thoughts on this.

What ever happened to letting “boys be boys?” Take these two cases: In one, a seven-year-old boy was sent home for nibbling a Pop Tart into a gun. In another, a teacher was so alarmed by a picture drawn by a student (of a sword fight), that the boy’s parents were summoned in for a conference. In short, boys in America’s schools are routinely punished for being active, competitive, and restless. In other words, boys can no longer be boys. Christina Hoff Sommers, a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, explains how we can change this.
