Boys and girls education

According to a "Point of View" radio program guest, "For too long, policymakers and the public has accepted the idea that girls are short-changed” by our public school system. The facts tell a different story." Krista Kafer spoke to this issue. According to Krista, girls are actually outperforming boys in most academic measures. (7 May 2007)

Some things I heard her say on "Point of View":
Women are awarded 77% of the degrees in education
"Equal opportunity does not mean equal outcome"
There is no literacy gap between homeschooled boys and homeschooled girls
