Creating a More Positive Future for Boys and Young Men Fourteen Point Plan

Over the past thirty years, there has been a persistent and growing attainment gap between boys and girls in the UK. Yet, there has been little or no political focus on the causes of the gap, or the measures and policies that could be put in place to address it. While there have, quite correctly, been initiatives looking at gender pay gaps, at FTSE-100 board membership and at encouraging more girls into STEM and apprenticeships, there have been no national initiatives, policies or campaigns on boys educational achievement. This 14-point plan brings together powerful and innovative recommendations from some of the country’s leading educationalists and academics currently addressing this issue. For further inquiries about the recommendations, please contact the contributors listed after each point.
