The Trouble with Boys

Sometimes its hard to be a boy or a young man.

Sometimes it's hard to be a boy or a young man. Evidence abounds that boys are underachieving at school and find it more difficult than girls to express their emotions. Are boys genetically predisposed to struggle early on in life, or do they simply need more encouragement and the opportunity to flourish? Is it time for boys to be given their own specialist support in the classroom and beyond? Would it help if we provided them with stronger role models?

Speakers: Steve Jones, Professor of Genetics, University College London and author of Y; The Descent of Men; Lord Taylor of Warwick; Victoria Glendinning, biographer and co-editor of Sons and Mothers. Chair: Barbara Myers, presenter, Radio 4.
