The Australian Perspective

The most valuable discussion about gender gaps continues to arise from Australia. Here's a discussion from the Sydney Morning Herald that includes some valuable research links.

Also interesting is the debate about single-sex education. Based on nothing more than anecdotal hunch, I've long suspected that single-sex education benefits girls more than boys. I find I'm not alone. Interesting irony at play here: single-sex education, to date, is the only "solution" to the boy troubles being offered by educators.
