Boys don't cry, but they sure do flunk out

Here an interesting article, Stop Avoiding the Issue of Failing Boys, from Inside Higher Ed noting that males flunk out of high school and college at far higher rates than females.  I wonder if anyone has studied whether the same pattern holds true in law school.  If not, it would make an interesting study - to learn whether the retention patterns seen in high school and college continue through law school or if there's something about the law school experience that alters it. 

Hat tip to Insider Higher Ed.

I am the scholarship dude.
