    Look at the mixture – only 2 boys in NS!

    They have been falling behind girls, for many years now and are no longer represented in Graduating classes, Arctic College, Management Studies, Trades and Apprenticeships and NTEP.

    Girls because they can focus, and care committed to their future, are pulling ahead of boys.

    Boys get the heck up and get out of your house ; be in school, be in training and graduate. You cannot stay young forever and it is going to catch up with you.

    Boys are really falling behind and they better catch up fast.

    That may be the cause of some much violence towards girls.

      Interesting point, this has been happening all over, granted this case seems even more extreme than usual. Still, women are getting more education than men as a higher ratio are attending universities than men today. Funny thing is, if it was the other way around the howls of gender based injustice would ring, in this case, only silence.
