Australians Lead the Way
How often do you hear that, unless it has something to do with barbies (no, not the doll) or 'roos' or rugby? I visited Australia while researching Why Boys Fail. Great country, and I'm not just talking about the beer.
Australia is way ahead of the world in researching the boy troubles. They haven't solved the issue, in practical terms, but the basic research is a decade ahead of most countries. (Arne Duncan could save himself a lot of time and expense just by 'lifting' their Lighthouse reports and claiming them as made-in-the-USA.)
