In ground-breaking research by Dr Jeremy Swinson, an honorary lecturer in educational psychology at Liverpool John Moores University has shown that boys are five times more likely to be told off in a primary school class than girls even though they are just as likely to misbehave.
They are also less likely to be praised or picked to answer a question, despite raising their hands just as often as girls.
As quoted in the Daily Telegraph (link), "The 'prejudiced' views of some teachers could be damaging boys' self-belief, it is feared, causing them to do badly at school. Dr Swinson said that this "prejudice" could explain why girls get better exam results than boys. "Perhaps some boys get disenchanted with lessons because they are being told off too much," he said.
This proves that the feminisation of education has damaged boys education. Already boys are far behind girls educationally since the move away from testing/exams (O-levels) to course based work (GCSE).
When is the Government and educational establishment going to do something about it?
