Video: The War on Boys

Posted By on Tue, May 20, 2014 at 3:00 PM


Prager University's Christina Hoff says we should let "boys be boys" and stop treating them like “defective girls.” In this video titled War on Boys, Hoff says boys are now falling behind academically, and winning less honor awards. The resident scholar poses four reforms that would help the boys, and I think this also applies to all genders.

The additional amendment I would pose to her list is process of failure. Kids are held to these ridiculous perfect standards, and are always fighting a win-or-lose battle. That's the major flaw in our education curriculum. They need to know what it's like to screw up and learn from their mistakes.

I'm not a teacher. Plus, I barely passed high school, so what do I know.
