If it wasn’t for the girls, we men would not have been able to do anything much! 🙂 Such is the refrain from the fairer side. Well, that may be true to a large extent now. A study by Tel Aviv University now says that Girls have a calming effect on the boys in a class and are a motivation for the boys to perform well.
If the boys weren’t there, the behavior of the boys suffers tremendously!
A higher percentage of girls lowers the amount of classroom disruption and fosters a better relationship between pupils and their teacher, a study of the data suggests.
The study also found that in high school the classes that were high on academic achievement were consistently higher on ratio of girls. Now, that could mean that girls performed better (which I suspect is the case – at least in the Indian national exams that always holds true) or they are a motivating factor. Whatever the case may be, world and schools are better off with both men and women in it. Specially the latter.
