I just wanna put this out there.
We keep being told how education is failing boys. We EXPECT things of them that they can’t deliver. We don’t understand boys. BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, YADDA, YADDA, YADDA.
I teach ancient civilizations. In each, boys were educated by men. Girls were essentially ignored. So, who invented education? Hmm, it’s right here on the tip of my tongue, oh I think I got it, OH YEAH. MEN. For whom? Boys. In what manner? At that time I’m guessing oral input, stone tablets, and goodness knows what else.
So if education is failing boys, we should probably blame the original designers. Please leave us women/girls out of it. We’re just lucky to have mastered such a mediocre system.
