Public Schools vs. Traditional Private Schools vs. GRA
When education is mishandled in America, it seems to be the boys who suffer most. Boys are more likely to be enrolled in special education classes, held back a grade, referred to school psychologists, and drop out of school. Overall, they are less committed to school and are less likely to go to college. Boys are punished more often and more severely. Schools have fundamental control over these results, but not all schools are willing to be accountable for them. This is the key difference between Grand River Academy and other schools, both public and private.
