Prager U: War on Boys

Jason Fertig

Can school be designed to let boys be boys?  In the newest Prager University course, American Enterprise Institute scholar, Christina Hoff Sommers, proposes a plan to counter a system that punishes young boys for being active, competitive, and restless.  In Ms. Sommers' words, “boys are not defective girls.”  How true.  Many boys don’t need Ritalin, they need recess.

(Best-selling author, columnist, and nationally syndicated radio host Dennis Prager created Prager University to counter the indoctrination, drivel, and apathy that pervades today’s college campuses. With 5-minute, professionally produced videos from experts in economics, history, political science, and religion, PragerU offers big ideas on big topics, 5 minutes at a time.)
