Here are the facts:
Boys today are simply not learning as well as girls
Boys receive 70% of the Ds and Fs given all students
Boys cause 90% of classroom discipline problems
80% of all high school dropouts are boys
Millions of American boys are on Ritalin and other mind-bending control drugs
Only 40% of college students are boys
And three out of four learning disabled students are boys
So what can we do?
Gurian has the answer in this enormously fascinating and practical book which shows parents and teachers how to help boys overcome their current classroom obstacles by helping to create the proper learning environment, understand how to help boys work with their unique natural gifts, nurture and expand every bit of their potential, and enabling them to succeed in life the way they ought to.
Gurian presents a whole new way of solving the problem based on the success of his program in schools across the country, the latest research and application of neuro-biological research on how boys' brains actually work and how they can learn very well if they're properly taught.
Anyone who cares about the future of our boys must read this book.

a must read for parents and teachers if boys....
As a teacher for over 30 years, a female principal of a boy school and a mother of a 17 year old son, this book has been quite an eye opener. I highly recommend this book to parents and teachers of boys.
