A recent study of 75 countries, using a decade of data from the Programme for International Student Assessment, offers additional insight into the maths and reading gaps that exist among female and male students -- with girls continuing to outperform boys in reading and male students excelling in maths. "Educational systems could be improved by acknowledging that, in general, boys and girls are different," said David Geary, who co-authored the study with Gijabert Stoet from the University of Leeds in England. "The consistent pattern within nations suggests the sex differences are not simply related to socioeconomic factors."
Should schools focus on differences between boys and girls?
