  1. Well, any one has done the research will know that boys learn differently from girls. the research also shows that many schools are dominated by female teachers who teach with a style that is more suiting to girls.
    Now as for these stat, what are we planning to do to help our boys? Answer me that because, we keep looking at the results and do nothing. Sick and tired of the attitude we have in this place.
