Five Point Plan for Helping Boys
Toronto's Globe & Mail wraps up its six-part series on the boy troubles with an editorial listing five steps that could help boys. This is the most impressive project newspaper project I've ever seen on the issue. If The New York Times or Wall Street Journal ever did the same in this country, policy would change.
I'm only somewhat enthusiastic about the five they chose -- it's fair to say their list reflects the conventional wisdom about what's needed. But that's less important than the value of highlighting these issues for educators, who tend to ignore gender gaps.
