  1. I believe all students are led not by achievement, but by what make them feel complete and secure or say, innersecurity. I feel in areas of stem fields, while Males may have the present lead, I feel women will continue to increase in education and yes, take over the stem areas in time. I feel in the area of stem areas, Females are able to reach places of innersecurity due to more proper treatment maintained from an early age onward without reaching into the stem areas. This limits Female entry into those areas. I feel however as the older Males in those areas retire, the positions will slowly be taken over by Females by sheer numbers of more educated Females. I feel Male entrys will be increasingly curtailed (unless made up by Males from other nations). The reason here is there are fewer and fewer nice, stable, middle class families offering somewhat compatible stable support for Male students. However, I feel the numbers of Females in college are true and those numbers will continue to rise. I feel in time, the differential treatment will eventually allow women to take over all areas including stem fields. We must however, look at how this will affect society in the long run by Males losing feelings of self-worth and then attacking and bringing down our very fragile society as a result.

    I see differential treatment as creating many differences in academic achievement over time. It is this differential treatment beginning as early as the first year that is creating the ever increasing gender gap in education.
