I’m not fond of video games and recognize the harm they can cause. But I’m skeptical that video games play the villain role in the boy troubles. Interesting discussion of that in England where there’s fresh debate on the gender gaps resulting from surveys showing that male college graduates aren’t faring as well as their female counterparts.

And, to add to the discussion, we have the always insightful Dan Willingham writing in the Post about whether technology has shaped the way we learn.
