Education & Skills
By multiple measures, boys have fallen far behind in education
Over the last several decades, girls have overtaken boys by nearly every metric in educational outcomes. Today, boys are less prepared to start school and, at nearly every point in their K-12 school career, have lower GPAs than girls. Boys are also less likely to take advanced-placement courses and less likely to graduate high school. Women make made up the majority of students on America’s college campuses.
Girls are thriving–and that’s good news–but the data couldn’t be more clear. Something’s not working for boys.
