Chalk Talk: The Gender Gap in Education
A common issue in education is that boys do not enjoy reading, while girls struggle with science and math. Boys often have difficulty with reading because they think it is “uncool” to be seen reading books for enjoyment. A large factor is a lack of availability of boy-friendly reading material, which is further compounded by the fact that the majority of elementary teachers are females. This is problematic, as having positive attitudes toward reading plays a key role in students’ ability to comprehend texts. Teachers need to pay special attention to boys’ interests and allow them to read and write about topics they are passionate about, including sports. Incorporating electronic books via iPads, Kindles, etc. can also help motivate boys to read in this technology-driven society. As for the girls, although females are becoming more and more ambitious with their career aspirations, they are still lagging behind the males when it comes to math and science—particularly in their presence in fields such as engineering and science.
