Continuation of Education
So, several people posted important comments and suggestions about why there has been an increase in females pursuing more education in recent years in the US. But, how about the other side of the equation–that of males decreasing pursuit of education? One suggestion that several people made was that it had something to do with opportunities in the building trades. However, as I pointed out, US born males participation in the building trades occupations has also been steadily decreasing for the last few decades and most who work, work in the service industries. So, any other explanations as to why you have decreasing rates for males in pursuing education in the US?
