Glad to hear that you believe every student is capable of achieving a pass mark.

I don't believe lowering the "pass mark" will ever create gender equality in schools/communities. In practice, gender equal opportunity exists when people with similar abilities reach similar results after doing a similar amount of work over the same period of time with similar amounts of support.

The reason more men attend High School than women is more to do with "sterotype" attitude ie....women are "homemakers" and men are the "breedwinners" and thus the need for an education. This attitude still exists world wide.

Attitudes can change within the family unit, by both parents supporting each other and encouraging children (female/male) to do their best in all aspects of life.

Attitudes can change in families by both parents but how do expect the parents to support their children, especially a female child if the parents they themselves do not have that minimum level of education to change their own sterotype attitutes.

Allowing more females to be educated is one way to `actively` promoting gender equality. You will agree that it is not fare to male students but I see that we should actively facilitate gender equality and not passively let it develop.

If you have better suggestions lets hear it.

sorry, but wasn't make suggestions, was passing my views and thoughts.

I'm certainly not against education, especially for women, was just stating (my views) "why more men than women are attending school"

Also, I don't believe that just because a woman or man is not "educated", they unable can't change direction for their children. Reading, writing, maths are skills that we learn in school. But learning also comes from life experiences and our surroundings.

peace as well to you :)
