By: Tom Swanson

“Boys are suffering a death of a thousand cuts” in today’s education system.

Ron Henry, president of The Boy’s Initiative, says that America’s education system has grown increasingly unfriendly to boys’ learning styles and needs. At AFF’s July roundtable on higher education, Ron talked about this “death of a thousand cuts”, why it came into existence, why it’s bad for our education system, and what to do about it.
