I wonder if the boys think, Why work in school when we get the good jobs
anyway? Does this suggest an educational strategy? And perhaps we need
to address the jobs/income disparity? Girls, good for you!; but this is
not a meritocracy here; build your political savvy and clout as well;
the boys are still getting the careers.
