Boys are more likely than girls to drop out of school before finishing high school. We hear from a group of boys as they express what makes middle school difficult for them. Their answers varied from academic challenges to social issues. Many boys feel under pressure to be fast, strong and athletic. Middle school boys must also deal with their peers’ sometimes insulting and making fun of them. Plus Scott gives us some ways boys can deal with the challenges of middle school. Things that can help are: take advantage of the different activities and clubs offered in middle school; or even consider starting your own club. Scott also explores the difficulty boys have dealing with girls in middle school.
