Most teachers are women. Nothing is being done to change the imbalance. Boys have few role models in schools.

Most teachers are women. Nothing is being done to change that imbalance. Many modern educational practices are counterproductive for boys. Success in school is tightly correlated with the ability to sit still, be quiet, and complete paperwork. Many young boys are bodily kinesthetic learners who respond to hands-on lessons. The educational establishment finds this inconvenient, and thus largely ignores it. The trend against competition and the promotion of cooperative learning strategies run counter to boys’ natural competitiveness and individual initiative. Lessons in which there are no right or wrong answers, and from which solid conclusions cannot be drawn, tend to frustrate boys, who often view them as pointless. Many healthy, energetic, and intelligent boys are branded as behavior problems as soon as they begin school, and are punished and put on Ritalin or other drugs so they will sit still. Because schools and classrooms do not fit their educational needs, many boys disengage from school long before they reach high school. Fewer and fewer of them ever reach college.

There are now more women graduating from college than men.

Many colleges and universities are overrun with feminist leaning staff. Nothing is being done to change that imbalance. Sensationalized but discredited statistics, drastically exaggerating the occurrence of date rape and domestic violence, are often an integral part of campus culture. Also, the U.S. college-age population is 51% male / 49% female, but college undergraduates are 43% male / 57% female. The percentage of male students continues to decrease. There are now more females graduating with higher degrees than males. Colleges and universities are doing little or nothing to correct this worsening gender disparity. College campuses are not male friendly. Many institutions have adopted Orwellian policies denying due process to men accused some perceived slight or accusation.

    As sad as it may seem, the story below highlights only the tip of the iceberg and myriad of bias; the true depth of victimization faced by America’s Boys is discussing. Real cases of “Boy-Bashing” are manifesting all over America, what can be done? Why are schools and lawmakers turning the other way, instead of writing laws to protect our Boys? It makes me angry at what are young boys are dealing with in High school these days.

    (These types of “Legal Bully” situations are likely why boys are usually the prime suspects in all High school mass-shootings? Correlation…or causation?)
    High School Girls Admitted to Making False Sexual Assault Accusations Against a Male Student Because They ‘Just Don’t Like Him’
    Lawyer says his client “was basically being tortured in school by the other students.”

    Seneca Valley School District in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is facing a lawsuit from a former male student who was forced out of school—and investigated for sexual assault—due to a series of false accusations made by female students.

    The girls—dubbed “mean girls” in the lawsuit, a reference to the 2004 Lindsay Lohan film—admitted on tape that they made up the assault story. One said, “I just don’t like him” and “[I] would do anything to get him expelled,” according to The Toronto Sun.

    The false allegations were life-derailing for the accused, who is referred to as “T.F.” in the lawsuit. On October 3, 2017, one of the girls told other students that T.F. had sexually assaulted her at a pool; a Seneca Valley guidance counselor overheard the accusation, and reported it to Childline, the state’s child abuse prevention agency, as required by law. T.F. was swiftly charged with indecent assault and harassment, and received six months of probation as part of a plea deal.

    Months later, in March of 2018, T.F. was again falsely accused, according to the lawsuit. Another girl invited him over to a house party; a few days later, she told the school guidance counselor that T.F. had broken into her home and sexually assaulted her. The lawsuit claims she was coached by T.F.’s first accuser. As a result of this accusation, T.F. was charged with assault and criminal trespassing. He was removed from school in leg and wrist shackles, and spent 9 days in juvenile detention.

    The lawsuit elaborates on a number of other indignities T.F. suffered:

    He was released on house arrest on April 18, 2018, with an ankle monitor, and specific instructions…(CLICK LINK ABOVE TO READ MORE)

    I just read a story about a boy in the first grade that got suspended for three days for singing the song from the M&M’s commercial, the one when he stripes down and dances naked. This is another example of how the education system in America criminalizes boys at an early age. In the past I would have been more concerned with the fact that the boy is black, but since I have been enlightened by the information I have seen on the NCFM website I have a totally new perspective on these issues. Unlike racial discrimination gender discrimination is socially and legally accepted. This is what makes it much worse than racial discrimination.

    Not according to statistics compiled at the US Department of Education. Women outnumber men in great numbers at both the primary and secondary levels.

    This article is half assed. There are PLENTY of male teachers, especially at the college level. So STFU and stop bitching

    Here is a case NCFM ought to take a hard look at:

    Westwood, MA High School Track Coach is summarily fired for allowing members of the boys track team to run shirtless, in violation of an edict issued either directly by the HS Principal, Emily Parks (per a short line in the Boston Globe), or because members of the girls track team objected to members of the boys track team running shirtless.

    The comments to the story contain the phone number of the Superintendent, who is supporting the firing and the boys-must-play-sports-in-shirts rule. Wonder what that will look at for the swim team? No more shirts vs. skins in team scrimmages either I suppose. Maybe this is a way-station on the path to eliminating boys track and boys swim teams entirely?

    Call the Superintendent. Let him know what you think about this kind of dislcrimination against boy athletes in high school.

      Actually frank it is the way-station to the elimination of male rights and privileges altogether.

    Where is the outrage from the feminazis at the teacher gap.
