Boys in Educational Danger

Doug Anglin, a high school senior in Massachusetts is suing his school district because it favors girls over boys. He claims, "'From the elementary level, they establish a philosophy that if you sit down, follow orders, and listen to what they say, you'll do well and get good grades. Men naturally rebel against this." Research does indicate that boys are, indeed, lagging educationally. Is it the system's fault? Are boys naturally disinclined to succeed in an educational setting?
