Silence on Gender Gaps Likely to Continue
President Obama today will renew his call to boost college graduation rates, with a goal set for 60 percent by 2020, up from 40 percent today. Good goal, but there's only one way to get there, which is by boosting the high school graduation rates, college entry rates and college graduation rates for men. Women are doing well; it's men who are the problem. Probability of Obama pointing this out: near zero.
