Minister: No easy solutions to get school boys up in gear

Minister of education), Pernille Rosenkrantz-Theil do not believe that the school is decorated well enough for boys.

It is a concern that boys are lagging behind girls in elementary school, and there is a need to illustrate the problem better, so that fewer leave school without able to read, count and be good in science subjects.

that is How it sounds from the minister of education), Pernille Rosenkrantz-Theil (S) on the back edge of the latest Pisa survey, which examines the views of pupils skills.

- There are too many who leave primary school without being able to the things that need to in order to cope in society.

- There are too many boys who are lagging behind. It won't do. Unfortunately I do not think that there is any snuptagsløsning, says Pernille Rosenkrantz-Theil.

the Pisa study shows that the Danish students have gone back in science since the last survey in 2015.

Particularly the boys go back, and for the first time doing the girls better in the subjects that cover physics, chemistry, biology and geography.

- It is worrying that it is worse in science, and especially to the boys now also lagging behind the girls.

- It is a kønsproblematik, and it suggests that we have a challenge to accommodate boys in the Danish public school, because they seem to lose motivation, she says.

In mathematics, the development is fairly stable compared to 2015, but when you look at sex, are the boys gone back and now at about the same level as the girls.

Pernille Rosenkrantz-Theil believes that it is a long haul that requires studies, which can shed light on why boys are doing worse.

- You must be careful not to react too quickly. It may well be that it works efficiently, but you will not get the problem solved, she says.

the Pupils is about equally as good to read as in the last survey, and the girls continues to perform far better than the boys. Every sixth student, however, will be described as a very weak reading.

Pernille Rosenkrantz-Theil highlights, to the government in relation to the reading has already come up with a proposal in relation to dyslexia, which will ensure that it gets tracked down in the past.

Overall, the Danish pupils above the average in the OECD, which consists of 35 countries in reading, mathematics and science.

Pisa is an OECD study comparing school students ' performance in all member states, as well as a number of "partner countries".

the Intention is to test how good 15-year-old students in mathematics, science and reading.
