UK: Thousands of boys 'at least four years behind in reading'
'More than 20,000 boys left primary school this summer with the reading skills of a seven-year-old or worse, according to official figures.
Seven per cent of 11-year-old boys will be starting secondary education with ability levels no better than those expected of the average infant, it was revealed.
Despite a record rise in results this year, figures showed that boys were almost twice as likely as girls to fail basic reading tests.
In all, some 20,300 boys were at Level 2 or below in reading – the standard normally expected after just two years of compulsory schooling – compared with 10,400 girls.
The disclosure comes amid concerns that a lack of male role models at home and school may be turning boys off reading at a young age.
Earlier this year, the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Literacy warned that large numbers of boys were failing to develop a love of reading during primary education because of a shortage of male teachers combined with an anti-book culture among many fathers.'
