Description

Many parents and educators today are worried about the education of smart girls, especially in areas like math and science, but what about their male counterparts? According to a U.S. Census Bureau report (2004), boys drop out of school at a 25% higher rate than girls. In addition, the current trend sees more girls enrolling in college than boys. Boys need to be given the tools they need to succeed in school, including strategies for channeling their interests, keeping them actively engaged, increasing their participation in humanities classes like language arts, and dealing with the unique social and emotional problems they face in school. The authors, leaders in the field of education, combine field-tested strategies and advice with case studies of boys across the nation to give smart young boys and their parents a strong guide for ensuring boys' success in school and the future.

About the Author

Terry W. Neu Ph.D.

National education leaders, Rich Weinfeld and Terry Neu, Ph.D., know firsthand that boys need special attention, accommodations, and advocacy in order to succeed in school. The authors delve into the causes and solutions to the problems boys face in school. Weinfeld was instrumental in coordinating the Montgomery County, MD, gifted and learning disabled program, which served many boys who were failing in their previous school experiences and provided these boys with the tools and confidence they needed to succeed. Neu, who currently serves as an assistant professor of education at Sacred Heart University, previously served as the coordinator of Project High Hopes, which pairs students with learning disabilities with mentors. Both authors are the fathers, coaches, and teachers of boys.
