I am violating my brand-new All-Premack-all-the-time Principle to put up this post first thing in the morning instead of second thing:
One Classroom, Two Genders
By JENNIFER FINNEY BOYLAN
There are two surprises: one in the middle, one at the end.
The middle one was especially fun for me because I'd read the whole first column thinking, "Really?"
The twist in the middle explained my astonishment.
Read the whole thing because.....the last line is fabulous. Especially for readers of ktm, I think.
postscript: I remember writing lots of posts on the subject of "the girl show."
I wonder if any of you remember the time our middle school principal -- Chris was in the 6th grade -- told us: "Everyone knows boys do worse in middle school."
