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....
