let boys be boys

Dr Tony Sewell will argue at the NASUWT conference today that the feminisation of education offers an explanation for the differential in educational performance between boys and girls. His formula for change involves a shift back to final exams, encourage more competitiveness and leadership roles, more outdoor adventure as part of the curriculum and a more pro-active policy to recruit male teachers. He believes that the frustration of masculinity in education is contributing to the growth of gangs.
