    Re: Are girls smarter than boys?

    Quite frankly, no. Gender doesn’t have any factor on whether you are intelligent or not. There are always the stereotypical views of which gender is better at what like for instance “girls are better at cooking” or “boys are better at mechanics”. But in every stereotype you see an exception. I know I’ve shocked my father many times when it comes to my mechanical skill.

    Statistics may say these students are doing well academically but who’s to say that it’s really true. Many schools are biased when it comes to students so some of the students might not have earned it in the right way. Not to mention that being academically smart doesn’t automatically make you a truly smart person. Doing good in school isn’t really that hard. Just learn some facts, do your homework, and be nice to the teachers.

    To me, a truly smart person isn’t afraid to think. They like to analyze the facts and come up with opinions based on those facts. Not just learn what you need to pass the next test and automatically agreeing with everything someone else is saying.

    I surely hope girls are smarter than boys. Becuase someone needs to make up the smartness for us lol.

    But seriously, i think girl have potential to be smarter than boys. but sadly i often see that potential thrown away.

    As for boys, well it really makes me wonder if they really only care about one thing you know?
    Yay-yea?

    Well i do agree that i seems in school and such that theres more gurls that excel than boys, but most of our greatest thinkers and scientist are GUYS. Not to say theres not any girls famous for their smarts, but theres more guys in that category

    I would actually say that the potential is the same, but young females to me definitely are developed faster compare to the boys of the same age. But once they reach middle school age it seems the playing field becomes leveled. Honestly this topic is way to hard to say because it has so many variables. Potential is the same, but how each gender does it determines it. Right now there are way more females than males in college and universities.

    How dare you even suggest that!
    Your still a little naieve in a BIG way.
    Guys are not all dumb and not all of them think about that...
    Just like girls should be viewed as more then some sort of antidote for all of the screw-ups that guys make...
    GAH society is SO BACKWARDS AND SEXIST!!!! WHY CAN'T YOU PEOPLE SEE THAT?

    ... and join my rebellion against time.

    What you are seeing is a change in the emphasis of how things are taught and tested. As has been mentioned men and women tend to learn differently. It used to be teaching styles and testing were made from the view of men, that has now swung in the opposite direction in places... or you just have some very talented females in your area.

    If we are really worried about it then perhaps we should go back to all girl and guy schools. Then the teaching can cater to the exact style for each.

    It starts leveling at 16 and finishes by 18-19.
