Leaving our boys behind, educationally

Girls' Gains Have Not Cost Boys trumpets the New York Times' headline. I can only say, hurray! Education is not a zero-sum game.

The report points out that a greater proportion of men and women than ever before are graduating from high school and earning college degrees. But, it says, “perhaps the most compelling evidence against the existence of a boys’ crisis is that men continue to outearn women in the workplace.”

Apparently race, ethnicity, and income levels play far more part in differences among groups than sex.
