Trivia Tidbit Of The Day: Part 165 -- Men & Women.

The Gender Gap-

Girls may now rule American high schools, academically, and make up increasing proportions of college populations. But they still have many trails to blaze in the elite levels of science, math, literature, architecture, medicine, and just about every other scholarly pursuit.

...in the 20th century, women got only 2 percent of the Nobel Prizes in the sciences—a proportion constant for both halves of the century—and 10 percent of the prizes in literature. The Fields Medal, the most prestigious award in mathematics, has been given to 44 people since it originated in 1936. All have been men.

Commentary magazine, "The Inequality Taboo."

Written by one of the authors of The Bell Curve, the points made in the above article are something we need to examine. If there are natural differences between men and women, maybe we need to take a new approach to educating and training and preparing our youth.

Being a mother of a male and female. There are such big differences between the two! It is just one of those things that are unexplainable!...But it is what makes the world go around!

Hello! The first thing we could do is fix the teaching machine known as the NEA. Stop the unions in Education now. It is pitiful that teachers are protected by a union. If the system has a bad teacher they can't get rid of them because of the union. This is a problem because there are many good teachers who can't get jobs because the system is so goofed up.
