Girls tend to develop certain skills earlier than boys: for example, the ability to sit still and stay attentive. More often than not, most students will do just that — sit for long periods of time and listen attentively — or else suffer a lower grade or disciplinary action. Yet, girls are outperforming boys at all levels of the educational ladder, from kindergarten to graduate school. Boys score as well as or better than girls on most standardized tests, yet they are far less likely to get good grades, take advanced classes or attend college.
