A quick trawl unearthed this primary national strategy for supporting boys’ achievements.
The desirability of getting more chaps involved in early years education is alluded to twice when practitioners are invited to reflect on ~
“How do you encourage men to work in the early years?
Do you, for example, discuss this with other colleagues from other settings, including male practitioners and fathers?”
“invite fathers in, enabling them to join in and act as positive role models to the boys, involving them in a wide range of activities, particularly those which boys tend to avoid.”
A small % of 7.5K words, less than’s given over to outside play.
I wonder if there’s a study of the achievement of boys in “male rich” environments?
