The Pew report on shifting economic relationships between men and women and the investigation by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights into college admissions discrimination against women are drawing attention to the gender gap issue. This Saturday I’ll be a guest on Fox & Friends (at this point scheduled for 9:50 a.m. EST) to talk about those issues.
Those are just symptoms, of course. The real issue is what’s going on in K-12 schools that has led to decreased academic aspirations among boys. I anticipate that I will have an opportunity for a brief discussion of that issue and also talk about some possible solutions.
