Introduction
  • The educational achievement differences between

    and understood.However, the GAP in educational
    performance between the genders is less

The GAP in Educational Performance Among Genders
(Females of all racial groups graduate from high
school at higher rates than their male
counterparts.)
Difference in graduation rates between females
and males within each ethnic group

Gender Graduation Gap-Causes
  • Public schools have focused their instruction on
    female students to the detriment of males.
  • Minority males feel attracted to short-term
    opportunities in the employment market.
  • Teachers give up on them because they find them
    threatening.

7
Gap Between Latinas and Latinos-Causes
  • Latino males experience greater peer pressure.
  • Latino males are forced to work at a young age.
  • Latino males are not at grade level
    academically- creates frustration-leads to lack
    of interest in learning and moving on to higher
    grades/higher education.
  • Latino males experience greater behavioral
    problems.
  • Latino males receive less parental support during
    their early years of school.

8
Gap Between Latinas and Girls from Other Races -
Causes
  • U.S. schools are not meeting the educational
    needs of Latinas bilingualism.
  • Face pressure about going to college from
    community, family needs, peersetc.
  • Face stereotyping and other obstacles that
    discourages success in school.
  • Fear for their personal safety Often assumed to
    be gang members by teachers and counselors
    because they speak Spanish.

9
Conclusion
  • Studies identify high school as the beginning of
    the problems. However, results/causes show that
    high school is actually the end of the problem.
    The important thing is that the studies identify
    an ongoing problem which means that theres still
    time to make a difference in some boys lives.
