Education Gap

As of 2008 men accounted for only 42% of university enrollments and the numbers are steadily declining but no program has yet to address the issue of declining university education of male students while still more effort is put on female student subsidies. In 2003, the proportion high school student dropouts was 63% male students.

We are asking the government to address this alarming trend and stop neglecting the male half of the population.

      Same age, same quality of work product, same job position, same location: women actually earn slightly more. Want to talk about the glass floor?
