Girls Outperforming Boys Academically

A new report from Dr. Gijsbert Stoet of the University of Glasgow in Scotland and David C. Geary of the University of Missouri found that in 2009, high school girls performed significantly better on an international standardized test in 52 out of 74 studied countries.  As reported by the Huffington Post, the study notes the results extend to strict Muslim countries where there tends to be a “lack of opportunities for girls and women.”
