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.

Donate to keep Slugger lit!
For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.
Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.
While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.
If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
