The Gender Education Gap No One Is Discussing

 

After recent fantastical reports about the number of dropouts among Tertiary students being as much as one third, I felt a little extra reporting should be done to see how well our boys are doing in this NAPLAN-defined period of Education. So I sat down, scoured what I could find from the internet resources and came up with a rather condensed commentary. 

 

While not quite as light some previous videos I’ve done, hopefully you’ll be as startled as I was when you hear some of the figures given by some of the studies mentioned below. It’s not a great picture but one that must be addressed soon if we want better outcomes for the next generation of men. Enjoy.
