Boys lag; does anyone care?

USATODAY quite vehemently points out the lack of attention to boys' needs in American education and the concommitant drop in male scholarly acheivement.

(I found it interesting that the article says "girls are more facile learners". The Free Dictionary defines "facile" as "Done or acheived with little effort or difficulty" and also "Arrived at without due care, effort, or examination; superficial".)
