Student Opinion | Is School Designed More for Girls Than Boys? - NYTimes.com:

"Girls tend to develop certain skills earlier than boys: for example, the ability to sit still and stay attentive. Our school day, more often than not, demands that students do just that — sit for long periods of time and listen attentively — or else suffer a lower grade or disciplinary action. Now, girls are outperforming boys at all levels of the educational ladder, from kindergarten to graduate school.

Is school designed more for girls than boys?"
