Are we failing boys?
Females have made marked progress over the last three decades in both education and in the work force. But is this progress at the expense of males?
One report shows that women now earn almost 60 percent of all bachelor’s degrees and master’s degrees; about half of all law and medical degrees, and almost half of all Ph.D.'s. Consider that in 1970, about 13 percent of young women, compared to 20 percent of young men, had earned at least a bachelor's degree.
Why are boys falling behind in school? Which boys are most vulnerable? At what key times are boys most susceptible to slipping through the gaps? And what has been learned from our experience improving educational outcomes for girls?
On Friday, Jan. 28, at 7:30pm, I'll moderate a debate among education experts on this alarming educational trend on “Colorado Quarterly,” a series that brings together a diverse range of viewpoints to address pressing issues affecting all Coloradans.
The goal being that the gender differences shouldn't be a zero sum game but rather a solution that benefits all students.
Our panelists will include:
-Dottie Lamm - author, former social worker and former Colorado first lady
-Tim Foster - president of Mesa State College, RMPBS board member, former head of the Colorado Commission on Higher Ed and former state representative
-Dr. Lynn Gangone - dean, The Women's College of the University of Denver and associate clinical professor, higher education
-Dr. Rico Munn, former executive director of the Colorado Department of Higher Education, adjunct law professor at DU, and commercial litigation attorney
- Doug Price, Rocky Mountain PBS president and CEO
