The Trouble with Boys
Sunday, November 16, 2008
Do you need to better understand your young soon, your tween or your moody teen?
If the answer is yes. Come listen to Peg Tyre, author of "The Trouble With Boys: A Surprising Report Card on Our Sons, Their Problems at School, and What Parents and Educators Must Do".
"The Trouble With Boys" builds on Tyre's 2006 cover story for "Newsweek" that explored why boys are drastically falling behind girls in school. The article launched a fierce national debate over whether boys are truly "in crisis." Until recently, Peg Tyre was a senior writer at Newsweek specializing in social trends and education. She has won numerous awards for her work, including a Clarion Award and a Pulitzer Prize. Admission is free and open to the public.
