The Trouble with Boys

Peg Tyre

When:
Tuesday, October 8, 2013
Where:
Frick Center, Founders Lounge
Time:
7:00 PM
Description:

Boys begin to struggle the moment they enter a classroom. In preschool, they’re five times more likely than girls to be expelled; in elementary school, they’re four times more likely to be diagnosed with learning disorders. They account for only 43 percent of Americans enrolled in college. The Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Peg Tyre presents years of research from schools around the country on why boys are the new academic underdogs.
