Sara Mead in The Morning News - Arkansas | 'Parenting Matters In Achievement Of Boys, Girls'

September 11, 2008 |
Mandara was joined by Sara Mead, a senior research fellow at the New America Foundation, for a public discussion on the education of boys as part of the University of Arkansas education reform department lecture series. About 30 parents and teachers attended the discussion at the Jones Center for Families.

The pair will also discuss their research findings on the achievement gap today with graduate students and faculty in the College of Education and Health Professions.

In a 2006 report report, titled "The Trust About Boys and Girls," Mead wrote scores from the National Assessment of Educational Progress do not show boys lagging behind girls in achievement. LINK
