Research Base

A report by the National Center for Education Standards, Trends in Educational Equity of Girls and Women (2000), noted that in fourth grade the number of girls and boys who like math and science is about the same but by eighth grade twice as many boys as girls show an interest in these subjects. Research by other respected organizations, such as the National Science Foundation, reports similar findings.
