What’s happening to our boys?

In my school, 72% of our special education population are boys.  These stats are not unusual.  Across the country the stats are similar.  It gets even more staggering.  Check out these stats from www.boysproject.net

Many times all anyone needs is a little coaching, direction or tools to close the gap between where they are and where they should be. Making progress is not good enough. We must be closing the gap.
