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.

    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.
