Girls and Math – Part 1 | Psychology Today

Drawing on meatanalysis of the literature and new data gathered as a result of "No Child Left Behind" the researchers find that

"gender differences in performance were close to zero in all grades, including high school. [...] Thus, girls have now reached parity with boys in mathematics performance in the U.S., even in high school where a gap existed in earlier decades."

A question, that is not addressed by the study, but which I am curious about is how much of the narrowing of the gender gap is girls catching up vs how much is boys falling behind; especially as numeracy is one of my pet peeves.
