The video suggests four things that might change the fortunes of school age boys.
1) Turn Boys Into Readers
Introduce boys to reading on topics that already interest them. I can’t recall a single book I read for class in middle school but I can remember every fantasy novel I read on my own.
2) Inspire The Male Imagination
TC’s readership is overwhelmingly female and TC built itself on the confessional style. This seems self explanatory.
3) Zero Out Zero Tolerance Policies
They don’t work for adults, why would they ever work for children? It’s a poor craftsman that blames their tools and this goes for every sector and profession, teachers and the education system included.
4) Bring Back Recess
This goes for everyone, boy or girl. All children need time outside and playing games.
I found this to be an interesting point of view and, as a former little boy, much of it spoke to me. Tell me what you think in the comments.
