Boys Needs in School

I accidentally came across this nice article regarding boys' needs in schools and educations.
In girls' schools, students are encouraged to discover their own strengths and develop their own talents as part of the path to womanhood. Boys deserve the same opportunity to develop their own understanding of who they are and who they wish to become.

As this new paradigm emerges, some people worry that girls have been given an advantage, to the detriment of boys. They want the pendulum to swing back the other way.

But that's exactly the wrong approach. If girls and the girls' movement are leading the way, then the goal ought to be helping boys and the boys' movement catch up, not dragging girls down.
The article is at the National Coalition of Girls' Schools website. Thank you for thinking of the boys. I wonder how many other female oriented groups bother to give sincere encouragement to males.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

May 2006 be
your time to laugh,
embrace & receive
personal peace,
Dr. Howdy
