Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Much too easy to put blame on "feminist" activity.

Boys left to fail at school because attempts to help them earn wrath of feminists, says ex-UCAS chief  

Ms Curnock Cook praised the new higher education regulator for starting to highlight the underrepresentation of white working class boys at university, by listing them as a target group for outreach activities.

"But it's too late to say `you have to admit more poor white boys to university'. The reason why their particular admission rate is lower is because they have fallen behind in education. It starts in the early years and gets worse over time," she said.

Boys are also more likely to be expelled from school than girls, according to the Department for Education's most recent figures, with the permanent exclusion rate for boys over three times higher than that for girls.

In the past five years, more than twice as many male university students committed suicide than their female peers, despite there being fewer male students.

Intelligence Report Article Provokes Fury Among Men's Rights Activists | SPLC |

The last issue of the SPLC's Intelligence Report presented a scathing portrait of "a hard-line fringe" of the Men's Rights Movement (MRM): "women haters whose fury goes well beyond criticism of the family court system, domestic violence laws, and false rape accusations," whose rage is "directed at all women, not only perceived feminists."

In Dutch education system, Moroccan boys are doing poorer than the girls. It's a cultural thing in the immigration group of Moroccan families. And I speak from personal experience in addition to the attempt to get Moroccan boys to enter vocational education. Girls are doing much better in the languages and overall Dutch education. That's become a problem as the boys become young men and don't want to marry a "Western" Moroccan girl in The Netherlands. The young men return to Morocco to pick a partner and the cyclus starts from zero once again: poorly educated, doesn't speak the language and is conservative about the religion of Islam.
