100 Year Study: Girls Outperform Boys
Girls have gotten better grades than boys for 100 years, and yes, even in math and science.
To find this, researchers from Canada reviewed more than 300 studies on students from between 1914 and 2011. Researchers found that internationally, for a century, girls have outperformed boys in all of their classes.
Researchers say, "We didn't expect to find that girls did better at math and science as well. The girls did better whatever you give them." Researchers note, however, that the girls outpaced the boys in language and reading classes farther than they outpaced boys in math and science.
