7.30 Report - Boys Education
In a complex debate over the way we're raising and educating children these days, one pattern is inescapable. Boys dominate in all the worst statistics - suicide, accident and imprisonment, just to name a few. Research is increasingly linking these health and social problems with poor education, and on almost every measure boys are doing worse than girls at school.
Reason enough for about 800 teachers, academics and researchers to meet in Melbourne to nail the problem and find solutions. Among the research being announced at the conference is the story of a Newcastle high school that has achieved a dramatic turnaround in behavioural problems and truancy among its Year 7 boys.
