PAY ATTENTIONTODIFFERENCES...........INCLUDING THOSE IN YHE MALE SEX

Why, in American university, women surpass men and why are they better than men? In 2000 177,000 more women gradueted than men.
At the University of Seattle women constitute 61% of the students and at Princeton University, where women were admitted only 30 years ago, they constitute 57%. Feminists say that it is simply a success story, that when sex discrimination ended, women reached their natural level. Feminists also ask the question " Was there anybody who worried when the " gender gap" was the opposite and women did not go to university ? They say that , finally , the abilities of women are recognised. Michael Gurian, expert in child psychology, writes in his book "Men learn differently than women" that rather than female successes it is a matter of male lack of success, due to school programs which do not consider the different behaviour of the mail brain. Boys need to speak about their own ideas rather then being obliged to write and read.
They can not keep still for 40 consecutive minutes, loose their concentration and their teachers have to comply with their desires to jump around. Sometimes , faced with this problem, American families give over-active boys psyco-medicines.
