GENDER IMBALANCE MUST BE CORRECTED

Males are disadvantaged from the start:

Boys are nearly twice as likely as girls to have fallen behind by the time they start school, a report says.

Save the Children says a quarter of boys in England – 80,000 – started reception class struggling to speak a full sentence or follow instructions.

The report, based on a University of Bristol study, says children who start school behind often never catch up.

Governments must intervene.
