Male/ Female Gap In College Completion Still A Mystery

Last year females were  58% of college graduates at four year institutions. The ratio has been rising steadily, and is much worse for Latinos and African Americans. I read with anticipation the review of six new books on the cause for this in the November 23 edition of the Chronicle of Higher Education on line But there was nothing new in any of the books except more speculation and no hard data. Various causes are argued , but no strong empirical evidence to support the assertions. At least the title is correct for the book reviews-The Puzzle of Boys
