Let's talk about boys' education and the 'boy crisis'

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
This session explores the ‘boy crisis’ in education and potential ways an approach that addresses gender bias can improve academic achievement and wellness outcomes for boys in K-12 schools. First, we will discuss the issues impeding boys' achievement in schools and the impact an approach without gender bias can have on boys' educational outcomes. The largest impact on boys' underachievement in schools is, more broadly, unhealthy perceptions of masculinity in school and society. Therefore, an approach to addressing the ‘boy crisis’ needs to be done by shifting stereotypes of masculinity and boyhood. This session will share current research in the field that first considers the ‘boy crisis’ and then speak to the importance of an intersectional lens when examining boys' education.
