OneCornwall -Mark Roberts: Boys Don't Try?

OneCornwall TSH look forward to seeing you at our next Super Saturday on 2 April 2022, 9.30am- 3.00pm at Penrice Academy. We will welcome Mark Roberts, author of ‘Boys Don’t Try?’ –


“There is a significant problem in our schools: too many boys are struggling. The list of things to concern teachers is long. Disappointing academic results, a lack of interest in studying, higher exclusion rates, increasing mental health issues, sexist attitudes, an inability to express emotions.... Traditional ideas about masculinity are having a negative impact, not only on males, but females too. In this ground-breaking book, Matt Pinkett and Mark Roberts argue that schools must rethink their efforts to get boys back on track.”
