The Boy Crisis in American Schools and Why Boys Are Being Left Behind by Educational Advocates

Ep. 10
On this week’s Bespoke Parenting Hour, host Julie Gunlock talks to writer and education advocate Erika Sanzi, whe serves as the chief editor at Project Forever Free--an online platform foreducation activists. Julie and Erika (both moms of three school-aged boys)talk about what Erika calls "the boy crisis in American schools" and the very grim statistics that showboys are falling behind both in school and life. In addition, they discuss why it's become acceptable (even fashionable) in American culture to disparage boys and men and why terms like "the future is female '' and "girls rule" creates an unhelpful (and weird!) "us against them" way of thinking that harms both sexes and creates unnecessary hostility. Julie and Erika also discuss what Erikasays is the "narrative that boys are inherently bad or broken" and the media-drivengeneralizations about boys and men, which suggest they are "unworthy, expendable and deserving of scorn ... just for being male."Tune in!The Bespoke Parenting Hour is a podcast about and for parents who are tired of being told how to do it.
