With 83 out of 121 top subject awards taken out by females in this years’ NSW HSC, do we need to address learning needs for our boys? This domination seems to be an ongoing trend, with over two thirds of last years top achiever awards also going to girls. Are girls just better and more attentive students, or could boys increase their results by learning in a different way to girls?
There have been many documented studies showing the different motivators and methods for teaching girls and boys, perhaps its time more of these were employed in the classroom?
Drop us a line and let us know what you think.
