Exploring the ‘Boy Crisis' in Education (2011)

In many countries that are part of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), there is a growing concern over studies suggesting that boys lag behind girls in measures of scholastic achievement.

In this report, the author draws on research reports, website materials and informal consultations with official sources to explore this issue. Specifically, he looks at education and training participation and results for boys and men throughout the OECD; whether there are policies and practices in place to counter unfavourable trends; what Canadian jurisdictions are doing; and what is known about the success and failure of various models throughout the OECD, particularly Germany, the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom.

The author concludes that while the label “boy crisis” offers a potentially useful starting point for examining a number of social, cultural, educational, economic and labour-market issues, it is still simply a starting point that highlights the need for further study.
