Proposed boy literacy crisis at hand
Many parents of young boys are concerned with their literacy skills. Parents say they are trying to entice their boys to read more but find them starting to loose interest. Laura Bush, former first lady said, boys are falling dangerously behind girls in such areas as literacy. Some educators believe this so called phenomenon is exaggerated and boys end up doing fine in the future, usually holding better jobs than most women. Others are concerned with the difference in learning between males and females, citing studies to prove the phenomenon is growing and becoming more of a problem.
