More boys are among top performers, girls get more intermediate results. The Pisa Study (Program for International Student Assessment of the OECD) shows major
gendersex differences in almost all countries. Why is this so?
Pisa results: Boys perform better than girls (German) reports German News Magazine "Der Spiegel"
In the new Pisa Test, boys achieve top results more frequently then girls. This is not valid only for Germany, but for almost all 44 participating countries.
If males have an advantage in anything, our feminist society feels compelled to fix this inequality.
"We must analyze, if we give boys and girls equal incentive for top performance", says Franceso Avvisati, one of the authors of the study.
Of course, inborn sex differences must not exist, by Political correctness dogma. There must be other reasons.
Among the best performing 15 year old Germans there are significantly more boys (60%) then girls (40%). In almost all participating countries, more boys then girls are top performers. Among the weakest students boys and girls are equally distributed. In general boys’ results show more variance, while girls tend to be more average performers. Study Author Avisati has seen this before, in earlier Pisa Studies about math and reading competency.
Different in countries like Sweden, Norway, and Finland, societies where men and women are quite equal: here equal numbers of girls and boys were found among the top performers. Avvisati presumes, that teachers have equal expectations of boys and girls, that they motivate girls differently
We dare to suggest the opposite, that in these countries’ feminized school system boys are disadvantaged and de-motivated.
As usual, Der Spiegel’s comments are uncensored by PC and much more interesting then the original article.
