Just a link...

The US Department of Education has a new section of their website devoted to Encouraging Girls in Math and Science. I haven't explored the information there yet, but did find one interesting tidbit. They suggest increasing student performance among girls by relating math lessons to real life. I haven't done the research, but I would expect that would raise everyone's performance, not close the gap between the genders.
