I find it intresting that many schools treat little boys being boys like a disease and say that they need to be more like little girls because they arbitarilly decided that how most girls behaive should be the excepted standard for both genders. this pracitce strikes me as being kinda sexist.

I disagree with you. Having one standard for girls and one for guys would be unfair. Letting girls get away with less than young boys "just being boys" is more sexist than holding both genders to a standard that helps prevent disruption in a learning environment.

If schools were amusement parks, then both boys and girls would most likely be set to a standard where "boys can be boys."

I didn't say have two seprate standards I just said change the standard to be a little more understanding to boys.

As in my last statement, making the standard lean towards boys creates an environment not suitable to learning, and will give them leniancy that will cause worse behavior later in life in most cases. I understand kids are kids but if you want them to mature into adults, you have to let them have their fun and correct bad behavior. We can't have schools become free for alls because "boys will be boys"

really how wil making a standard a little more suited to the way boys behave and the way boys learn and showing a little lieniency turn them in to monsters ? "you have to let them have their fun and correct bad behaivor " I agree but the problem is who defines what is unacceptable behaivor in a school ? I never said free for alls was a good Idea . all I'm saying is schools can take some consideration to how boys think and act and learn when designing curiculum . right now almost all ciruclum is designed for girls or geared towards feminising boys.

Designed for girls and feminising boys? That's ******** . Schools design the curiculum to promote a stable learning environment. Apparently you just have it stuck in your head that schools are run by feminazis trying to ruin the lives of young boys. You don't understand, boys (and girls) are corrected for bad behavior in school, and generally allowed to have more fun at home and on the weekends, where their childhood flourishes.

please schools almost never correct girls bad behaivor , girls lie,cheat,say really mean things, destroy other peoples stuff , they use you and the toss you like trash. yet the almost never get oin any trouble because schools are only concerned with stopping boys from rough housing or breaking things or bullying.

"they use you and toss you like trash." I think somebody is/was having some issues with the female gender. Regardless, if girls really do all that and get away with it, how is the school curiculum designed for girls? All of that stuff is against the rules, so you're making two contradicting points.

not at all they are two parts of a whole system the way most classes are taught are in the format most suited to how girls brains learn best which is oral explaintion and note taking. then the dicipline side of the system is set up to punish far more typical male behaivors then female behaivors. most female behaivors are exaled and male things are demonised.

That is such a load of ******** . I would expect to read that in 'The Fedora'd Gentleman." Dude, just stop. People learn individually, if girls show more often that oral explanation and note taking helped them more often, then it could have changed by this generation.

hmm well I suppose that is a possibility but the data from studies goes back to the mid 80's and shows that young boys, so 6-12 yea olds learn much better when the teacher uses visual aids and or props and makes class overall more interactive. now schools have know this for at least 15-16 years and have done nothing to improve teaching methods or curiclum. this show that because the current system works for most girls they just don't give a **** .

Really? Most classes I've been in have included loads of hands on activities. I don't think it's that schools are trying to be geared towards females, but it's definetaly lots easier to teach through notes and explanation than to do activities for every single lesson, which would be unnapealing to girls. You have to consider all sides.
User avatar #174 to #173 - timmywankenobi (07/17/2013) [-]
I guess so , and I suppose it does depend a lot on indivual teachers.
User avatar #175 to #174 - brettyoke (07/17/2013) [-]
It does. I just don't think anybody is out to get the boys, they just want a fair and stable learning environment that can be supported as easily as possible.
User avatar #176 to #175 - timmywankenobi (07/17/2013) [-]
I don't think "fair" is the right word I'd say more cheap or economic or simplist to maintain. but my point stands even if they aren't activily out to feminize boys at a young age. By not even giving a thought to how and what boys need and want to learn the system in place now hurts them and shows distane for their well being.

So you're saying that instead of holding both sexes to the same standard, there should be one for boys and one for girls...

That's sexist too you ********
User avatar #129 to #73 - srapture (07/17/2013) [-]
Believe it or not, boys and girls are not the same. It's not sexist to state facts.
User avatar #76 to #73 - timmywankenobi (07/17/2013) [-]
or we could have a new standard thats somewhere in the middle instead of completely on one side as it is now.
User avatar #74 to #73 - timmywankenobi (07/17/2013) [-]
no I'm saying we should have a standard that is more accepting to boy's behaivor . since the current standard is extrememly pro feminine.
