2016 SAT test results confirm pattern that’s persisted for 50 years — high school boys are better at math than girls | American Enterprise Institute - AEI % Every day one reads articles claiming that boys are no better at math than girls, or that their aptitudes for math are the same, or some other bit of anti-intuitive, manifestly phony balderdash. The linked article details the bizarre fact that although girls are "better prepared," "better educated," and get better grades than boys in math and science, where the rubber meets the road, boys come out on top. In QUANTITATIVE testing that actually measures math and science proficiency, it's no contest. In fact, the higher up the achievement scale one goes, the more marked the dominance of males becomes. It is not discrimination that results in science Nobel Prizes being disproportionately awarded to men. And these gender differences cross all ethnic lines, as true for Asians as for African Americans (interestingly, Asian FEMALES score higher than MALES in any other ethnic group, but who's counting?). The Left is DYING to find some heretofore hidden nefarious plot that is the cause of the top STEM jobs going to men, but in this, as in many things, the facts are the greatest rebuttal. Never fear, though, they will eventually demand that such positions be filled - at all levels - by a gender ratio that reflects the general population, proficiency be damned. Is it at all interesting that women come out on top in analogous evaluations of verbal aptitudes, and men feel not the least bit threatened?
