Boy Brains & Engagement Conference

Recent education research has focused much more on the learning, social outcomes and schooling experiences of boys. Boys are more likely to be held back, suspended or expelled — or to drop out of school altogether. This conference helps educators understand and support the unique neurochemistry of the male brain, increase engagement, improve academic outcomes and encourage a post-secondary educational mindset.
