Boy Crisis Over dramaticised?

In contrast to the previous article I wrote about, this article seams to believe that boys are doing fine in school, girls are just catching up. “In fact, with a few exceptions, American boys are scoring higher and achieving more than they ever have before. But girls have just improved their performance on some meas­­­ures even faster. As a result, girls have narrowed or even closed some academic gaps that previously favored boys, while other long-standing gaps that favored girls have widened, leading to the belief that boys are falling behind.” In truth this has been closer to my personal experience but it is a good example of how problems in society are interpreted by the author. there is likely truth in both articles.
