One of our new titles, Why Boys Fail: Saving Our Sons from an Educational System That’s Leaving Them Behind by Richard Whitmire, has been attracting some early trade buzz that we wanted to share with you.
“Sound advice—recommended for parents, educators, and others advocating for innovation and flexibility in their educational situations.” –-Library Journal
“Whitmire, a highly respected former USA Today education writer, creates a thorough, thought-provoking look at the increasing achievement gap between boys and girls…This engaging read, reminiscent of a highly polished op-ed piece, offers arguments that could be used by librarians, social workers, teachers, and other youth advocates to fund literacy and related programs for boys.” —Voya Magazine
“Unless educators and parents recognize that boys are in trouble and give them the help they need, the scenario that Whitmire outlines in the book may come true: ‘One day, possibly soon, thousands of mothers—mothers with sons struggling in school or daughters unable to find ‘marriageable mates’—will wonder why the gender gaps were ever considered controversial.” —ForeWord Reviews
Thank you to all the great reviewers and publications!
