Interesting study from the National Marriage Project. I'll summarize:the biggest impact was on those with the least academic attainment. What the "great recession" did was accelerate a gender trend already well under way. My prediction: In the coming years, the "marriageable mate" dilemma will become a routinely discussed and written-about issue....


In schools like this, you don't need to separate boys and girls to get great results from inner city males. I found the same in my book research. I'm not saying single-sex schools are a mistake ... just saying they're not the only path....


Interesting to compare the differences between Tunisia and the U.S. Here, the problem lies with under-educated males. Tom Friedman weighs in today....


This says as much about what passes as "scientific" research as it does about differences between men and women. But, if you haven't had your morning laugh yet.......


A little off the subject for this blog, but an interesting piece in USA Today by Christina Hoff Sommers....


Too many students being launched into four-year colleges? That's an easy argument to make. What's not so easy is to focus on the real deficit, which is preparing K-12 students for the inevitable post-high school training they will need. Forget the four-year argument. RiShawn Biddle adds his best to the debate....


There are some relevant insights about boys' education in this Washington Post piece. There's a push everywhere to tailor high school education more to job needs. The real issue, though, is tailoring high school education to the now-required post high school education needs....


Apparently, the foundations sponsoring this prize to increase college attainment don't realize there's a low-hanging-fruit path to boosting those numbers quickly: men. That's the group entering college at lower rates and then graduating at lower rates. This could be a good (and lucrative) project for the newly re-launched Boys Initiative to take on. Wait, I once wrote on this topic. Feel free to borrow ideas at will. If you win using my advice, you owe me lunch....


They're right. But solving this issue goes way beyond getting more black teachers into the classroom....


Separate the sexes and allow them to pursue reading/math skills on different time lines. In later grades, the skills levels merge....
