Science Splits Boys and Girls

The University of Leeds is taking part in a global study called the Relevance of Science Education. A survey of more than 1,200 pupils in England as part of the research has found that the sexes are split on what interests them in science. Report author Edgar Jenkins said that the differences are common to most of the developed world. ‘We have had a generation or more of promoting gender equality but the differences exist and I raise the question as to whether we should teach the two sexes separately for some of the time.’
