The Nature of Boys
November 7, 2018
The growth of the human mind is still high adventure, in many ways the highest adventure on earth.
-Norman Cousins

Writing in a Huffington Post blog, “Why Boys Are Failing in an Educational System Stacked Against Them,” educational psychologist, Lori Day explains that “educational experts proclaim that we have a crisis in the education of boys in this country. The media attention to this topic has been extensive, yet I do not see the systemic changes that are needed...

Day writes that “children are forced to use literacy skills much earlier than in the past, and boys develop these skills later than girls. In the world of ‘Kindergarten is the new first grade,’ boys are struggling mightily to keep up. When it comes to writing, the gender divide is even greater...our hyper-focus on standardized test scores is worsening, not ameliorating, the academic struggles of boys, and subsequently increasing the numbers of boys who turn off to school.”

It's a story that sends a message to our industry that we need a paradigm shift—to our thinking, our training, and our hiring—to recognize the gender imbalance that is putting young boys at great risk of failure. It's a story that urges us as a field to better understand the specific complexities of caring for young boys so that we may fulfill our ultimate promise to provide the highest quality of care possible to all children."
