The educational gap between America’s boys and girls continues to widen: in 2011, eighth-grade girls outperformed eighth-grade boys by 9 points in reading and by 20 points in writing (where 10 points equals one year of schooling). What can we do to boost boys’ educational performance in America?

A SNAPPY, New Kind of Fraud...  • The New York Post broke news this yesterday that food stamp recipients in the Big Apple and across the state are abusing their benefits by purchasing extra food and shipping it overseas to families and friends.

Using electronic debit cards loaded with funds to purchase food staples, food stamp recipients  load up their carts with nonperishable items like macaroni, canned milk, rice, beans and sausages that can survive a typical three-week journey.

According to a worker at a supermarket in Brooklyn, “Everybody does it.”

Introduction

Independent Women's Forum is a non-partisan, 501(c)(3) research and educational institution dedicated to expanding the conservative coalition, both by increasing the number of women who understand and value the benefits of limited government, personal liberty, and free markets, and by countering those who seek to ever expand government in the name of protecting women.
