There's a growing gender gap and it's hitting a critical stage. Young men are the focus of concern because of their underachievement. This program blends cross-country reports and discussions among parents, educators, boy and specialists. Every facet of the issue is explored. Will boys need special education classes? How have their favourite recreational activities affected their outlook? What will they be able to contribute and achieve as adults? The program also examines the cultural influences on boys' lives, and possible ways of stemming the tide of male high school dropouts.
