Boys vs. school: what to do?

I am writing in response to "Schools must engage students as they are." What does it mean "to engage people as they are?" If boys are doing worse in school, what can you do to make them better? Why do boys not fit in? Why are they doing worse compared to girls? Is it really up to college to lower their admissions so that males can be accepted in?

Or, is it up to us males to work harder to be able to get into these schools? Are males too easily distracted by girls, friends or everything else going in their room? I specifically work better when I am working in a room that has fewer people I know in it. Maybe there should be a study on males and the way they work in a classroom and what will help them in class. Do we accept everyone or try to better them?
