    Seriously though I see no reason to disagree with you. I think that it is clear that as a nation (the US anyway) we have made great strides in getting women to look at education as a path to the future. Women now see more options for themselves than ever before and education is the way to get them. What I worry about is that we are losing boys/men. If you look at the numbers you see that the average male student is behind the average girl in reading, writing and other related areas. Boys are, in my opinion, as much if not more at risk in those areas than girls were in math and science when we decided (rightly) that getting girls up to speed was a national priority. But I see little concern for boys in most schools.
