GCSE day sees record results… but boys fall further behind as gender gap hits record level

(For those not in the UK, The GCSE's are the exams all children take at 16)

Pass the sick bags as yet again we see endless shots in the media of giggling girls jumping with joy with barely a boy to be seen.

Yet aside from all the other points I could make on this (such as the way that successive socialist administrations have weakened the lives of boys through the removal of the father and the married family from the heart of our society, or the deliberate re-engineering of the education system to be biased against boys), just think about this for a moment:

Who will be the people who take their education and truly expand human knowledge in a significant way by creating new scientific theories and discoveries, creating the truly pioneering inventions of tomorrow, and disseminating information to the whole world through writing and editing Wikipedia articles?

You only have to look around you to see that the vast majority of these people are men.

You have to wonder, apart from creating bland obedient corporate and institutional workers, does our female-rigged education system really create a good return on investment?
