An interesting article in Salon, questioning whether boys are now the
ones being shortchanged at school.
The author quotes someone who says that boys need to do active stuff
like go to a swamp and look for polywogs to learn, while girls like
to read something and then write a paragraph. I don't know about
other girls, but I'd
also prefer to go to a swamp and look for polywogs....
