Forum: It's the boys' turn now
Article here. Excerpt:
'The Journal reported recently that the Rapid City School Foundation honored the Teacher of the Year and the Teachers of Distinction. I couldn't help but notice all 20 teachers honored are female. Not to say that the 20 aren't deserving but, even if there are more women teachers than men, it seems strange that there isn't a more equal ratio of deserving male teachers. Maybe teachers had to apply and no males applied. The Journal article didn't state how the winners were nominated or chosen or who makes up the foundation.
But what it reminded me of is the preferential treatment and special attention females still receive. It is acceptable in the work force, schools and universities to give preferential treatment and recognition to females. More scholarships are available to females than to males. It seems acceptable for women's groups to give scholarships only to females but not so much for men's groups (of which there are far fewer) to give scholarships only to males. Even the Federal Department of Education has preferential scholarships for women. Special entrance requirements have been put in place at some universities, such as doing away with math and science ACT and SAT tests scores because girls, in general, don't score as high on those sections. More subjective criteria can then be used to get the girls into engineering and computer programs. Special mentoring groups in high school and universities are formed to promote and bring along the females.
All this while males are dropping out of high school in record numbers and now nationwide university enrollment is approximately 40 percent male and 60 percent female. No one seems to care about the guys. I haven't heard the national alarm yet.'
