Analyses show that education of boys is affected by manifestations of masculinity which exudes itself in violence, indiscipline, crime, drug and alcohol abuse, truancy and absenteeism.Institutions ought to design support programs for boys, develop youth empowerment and education for life programs. This book has been written for parents, female and male youth, professionals in education, psychologists and anyone else interested in understanding the behavior and development of boys.
