Good Overview of Boy's Issues

An article by Meghan Cox Gurdon from the National Post does a great job covering many gender issues that boys face - including the high rates of male dropouts and boys who are held back a grade, the overprescription of Ritalin and other drugs to modify boys' behavior, the way male sports are being marginalized to compensate for girls' lack of participation, and the stereotypes that have been broken through for girls but not yet for boys. I feel this is a great introduction to the problems our young men have to face, and the lack of attention they receive. Source: National Post [Canadian newspaper]
