“Boys score as well as or better than girls on most standardized tests, yet they are far less likely to get good grades, take advanced classes or attend college, writes Christina Hoff Sommers in The Boys at the Back in the New York Times.

Elementary teachers give boys lower grades than their test scores would have predicted, according to a study in The Journal of Human Resources. Boys can’t keep up with girls in “attentiveness, persistence, eagerness to learn, the ability to sit still and work independently, ” the researchers say.

. . . one critic told me recently, the classroom is no more rigged against boys than workplaces are rigged against lazy and unfocused workers. But unproductive workers are adults — not 5-year-olds. If boys are restless and unfocused, why not look for ways to help them do better? As a nation, can we afford not to?

In a revised version of her book, The War on Boys, Sommers hits “boy-averse trends like the decline of recess, zero-tolerance disciplinary policies, the tendency to criminalize minor juvenile misconduct and the turn away from single-sex schooling.”

As our schools have become more feelings-centered, risk-averse, collaboration-oriented and sedentary, they have moved further and further from boys’ characteristic sensibilities.

New marketing company- conventions?

I have a new marketing company that i'm starting. It will essentially be a unique way for community businesses to market their products door to door.
My main question is the finding of clients. I have a few thoughts on how to gain new clients, however, I was curious to learn more about conventions. For example, I went to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas recently and saw all the new gadgets that people/businesses were looking to sell to other businesses. I'm looking for the same type of convention, to essentially showcase my new means of marketing for businesses in the community that want better ways to market their product or service then direct mail or passing out fliers.
Any suggestions or website links would be greatly appreciated.
