What Really Matters in Girls' Education.

We are living in a culture that is telling girls you can’t do math — that’s telling everybody that only Asians and nerds do math. And this assertion seems to be repeated for the boys and girls' education.

Newsweek published about a month now, a post on It’s Not Just About the Boys. Get Girls Into School. Newsweek talks about a project of the Center for Universal Education at the Council on Foreign Relations, which was started by former top economic adviser to President Bill Clinton (and currently advising Barack Obama),Gene Sperling, in 2002.

Educating girls will change the world, as this report and others like it show. Investing in girls' education doesn't just mean more literate women. It means healthier mothers and children, more sustainable families, growth in productivity and income, and fairer and more democratic societies.

The first woman to serve as White House Press Secretary for the first two years of the Clinton administration, was Dee Dee Myers. She writes at the Buzz Board of The Daily Beast and today, she also recommends Sperling's Book What Works in Girls' Education.
