The Trouble With Boys: Fathers are needed

It was the cover article for Newsweek Jan 30, 2006 but I somehow stumbled on it. [Obviously, I don't subscribe to Newsweek.]

Reading it I didn't find any new educational ideas. But then by home educating, the issues they bring up aren't meaningful. I do love the following quote [I realize it belongs in my men's study blog but...]:
One of the most reliable predictors of whether a boy will succeed or fail in high school rests on a single question: does he have a man in his life to look up to? Too often, the answer is no.
