Why Boys are Worth Educating
Following the Fawcett Society conference on Saturday, this was an interesting article
It makes me question:
Is feminism the real reason we don't ask more about boys "astonishing underperformance"?
When every employer needs a productive, talented, diverse workforce, will boys academic underperformance impact your long term recruitment strategy?
Have boys - so media aware - learnt that men will earn more, regardless of their academic attainment and disengaged from a system they see as irrelevant to their future? -
Is the education system sexist, against the attainment of boys?
How is boys attainment tied to social mobility, race, mental health and the financial barriers that face our youngest generation?
Could this be the gender issue that aligns mothers, fathers AND employers?
I'm keen to hear your views as I shape my own by working with EYFS - KS2. #Education #Inclusion #Feminism #Productivity #MentalHealth #SocialMobility #Recruit
