Girls are taking colleges by storm. They’re streaming to campuses in greater numbers, earning better grades and graduating more often. The same phenomenal success shows in high schools, where girls dominate honor rolls, hold more student government spots and rake in most of the academic awards.
The phenomenon is most serious in inner cities, but it’s evident in even the wealthiest school districts. And it’s not confined to the United States. The same trend is turning up throughout the industrialized world.
Even in Jordan University, the number of females is dramatically more than the number of males. In this current school year of 2003-2004, there are 18893 females enrolled and 13429 males, and this is actually a huge improvement from 2001-2002, when there were 14,419 females and only 9492 males.
Still impressive and quite pleasing.
