11/06/07 Education.. and More Education.

A couple weeks back, I was reading this article in The Sun, "Towson scraps gender effort," and came upon a statistic that really surprised me.  Apparently, 42% of US college students are male, 58% female.  I had no idea there was such a big gender gap.  We're going to be looking at the reasons behind that in the first part of today's show. The education theme will continue as we debate possible education funding cuts in the proposed state budget, and also host a teachers' roundtable to continue the conversations from earlier in the show from a teacher's perspective, as well as look at other issues that are important to teachers.  A new contract, maybe? -Justin

    Maybe because female population is more conscious about getting a good education. hey are more aggressive when it comes to make theirselves better.  Women are more keen when it comes different field like research, IT, arts, and making superior papers. Although it’s a case to case basis.
