It's getting worse for boys. And girls as a result.

I've been a follower of the Gurian Institute in the USA for quite a few years now.   They have boldly gone where few have dared before - focusing on boy issues. And more recently on girls as well - illustrating how boys and girls learn differently.   Their latest research numbers are not encouraging for boys.  Thanks to Michael Gurian confirming what I've felt for a long time.  And for allowing me to share their research as follows.

* Boys have fallen behind girls in every area of education from Preschool through Graduate school. 

* 85% of stimulant-addressing medications (like Ritalin) prescribed in the world are prescribed to U.S. boys. 

* Boys are twice as likely as girls to be victims of violence in America, but in certain age groups the ratio is 6:1. 

* Boys receive two-thirds of the Ds and Fs in our schools but less than 40 percent of the As. 

* Boys are twice as likely as girls to be labeled as “emotionally disturbed” and twice as likely to be diagnosed with a behavioural or learning disorder. 

* Boys are four times as likely as girls to be suspended or expelled from early childhood and K-12 learning environments. 

* Over the last 20 years, the reading skills of 17-year-old boys have steadily declined.

What's the long term affect of this twenty year trend?   

A seriously unbalanced university enrolment,  a shortage of "good men out there" and a lot of unhappy men and women.  Not to mention a serious lack of social skills and just plain respect for the opposite sex.

    La oferta monetaria es algo muy dinámico, que no está bajo el control de una sola persona o entidad, a pesar de la retórica en sentido contrario de algunos sectores. Punto fundamental de esto con respecto a la pregunta: a pesar de los desvaríos de algunas personas engañadas, ni usted, ni yo, ni ninguno de los bancos comerciales que utilizamos para nuestra banca podemos prestar [url=http://www.bancomercantil.biz/]banco mercantil[/url] más dinero del que instantáneamente tienen en la mano. Si quieren hacer más préstamos a prestatarios aparentemente solventes, tienen que ir a buscar ese efectivo de las fuentes y mecanismos descritos anteriormente, al igual que usted y yo.

    Yes, I realize Black Swan is a thriller, and I absolutely agree that it's the better movie. However, like the comedy movie, I feel the Best Thriller [url=https://isaidub.co.in/]isaidub[/url] should be judged pretty much solely on the "thrill" aspect. And while Black Swan did engulf me and keep in thrilled, The Town pulled that aspect off a bit better. Maybe because the action of it catered to that, I don't know.

    For a movie franchise with dozens of films over 45 years it's great to see that there's still fun to be had with it. Solace hit all the bad-ass notes that a good action flick needs and Daniel Craig is steadily moving up in Bond circles as one of the most beloved Bonds ever and deservedly so. While I still see the Bond franchise as a collection of great moments [url=http://isaimini.pro/]isaimini[/url] and a handful of solid films over the years, Solace proves that the Craig era has been able to breathe more life into something 45 years old than half a dozen iced coffees at Starbucks will into me when I hit 45 sometime in the next decade. Awesome, sharp action sequences in one slam bang awesome action fest. Loved it.
