Where We Live - Achievement Gaps
WGBH’s Where We Live project is back. This time with a focus on the changing definition of the American Dream. Today we look at the gender achievement gap that has males lagging behind females at every level from elementary school to college graduation rates. In an economy where education is now the key to a good job, that doesn't just spell trouble for men. It's creating a steeper climb for families to reach the middle class.
