Boys Are Suffering -- Should We Care?

I'm very glad to see a well-regarded publication like The Economist taking note of the crisis of boys and learning.

"Boys are being outclassed by girls at both school and university, and the gap is widening..."

"Now, across the rich world and in a growing number of poor countries, the balance has tilted the other way. Policymakers who once fretted about girls’ lack of confidence in science now spend their time dangling copies of “Harry Potter” before surly boys. Sweden has commissioned research into its “boy crisis”. Australia has devised a reading programme called “Boys, Blokes, Books & Bytes”. In just a couple of generations, one gender gap has closed, only for another to open up."
