Yes, exactly. This is to avoid a situation in which a male-dominated
school system pushes girls out of the funding and facilities needed to
achieve equity. You might say this is already happening, especially in
such clases as computer science and labs; but as long as kids can get
into a class, there is less likelihood of those classes being sealed
off. It sounds like you are handling the situation in a sensitive way!
