Anything He Can Do, She Can Do Better? The Feminization of Public Education

March 31, 2010 | NeW Staff

When academic institutions integrated girls and boys, they sunk the boy to raise the girl. Schools were so eager to lavish upon girls “equal recognition” and “equal opportunity”, that they left the boy behind. Legislation like Title IX is exemplary of this irresponsible fervor for equality. Coeducation has feminized curriculums, courses, faculty, and even school spirit in the name of equality. No school seemed safe from this feminization. In 1994, even the fortress walls of the Citadel fell to the trumpet sounds of equality when it was forced to admit its first female cadet. Throughout the past few decades, progressives have picketed, rioted, edited, litigated, and legislated all the differences out of the sexes.  The result:  Boys are falling behind in practically every scholastic endeavor but math

The solution: Segregation.

Boys and girls have different educational needs because they have different temperaments, different developmental patterns, different strengths and weaknesses. If we are to benefit from the intellectual potential of boys, we need to cultivate the differences between the sexes. Sex differences exist for a purpose. The sexes are destined to complement each other in matrimony and in the family precisely because of their differences. Coeducation interrupts this ideal by subjecting boys and girls to inapposite and unfair comparisons, and pressing boys and girls to compete against each other for grades, resources, and eventually jobs. 

The coeducational system and the feminization of public schools haven’t benefited girls either. Girls are not provided with adequate womanly ideals in their education. Rather than compelling the development of a feminine character, schools are encouraging girls to leave the home for the office. Women taking the majority of higher education degrees is not testimony that girls are doing better, but that marriage and family are suffering more. 
Boys and girls are different. The difference is so great, it tells the whole story. By trying to mute these differences, schools are endangering the uniquely feminine and masculine futures of our children.
