Count the number of boys and girls studying in your school in your neighboring coeducation school.
Ask the school administration to provide you with the data of boys and girls studying in your class below 5 years and 10 years. Study the difference any and explain it in the class.
After counting the number of boys and girls in my neighboring coeducation school, I interpreted that there are 500 boys and 450 girls in that school. This is total number of students including all age category. I requested the school administration to provide the data of boys and girls studying below 5 years and 10 years. There are 150 girls below five years and 145 boys below five years and there are 175 boys and 165 girls between 5 and 10 years. The difference that needs to be noted here is the retention statistics of the girl and boy students. The girl to boy ratio for the students below 5 years of age has shifted drastically for the students between 5 and 10 years. This means that while girls too started schooling with the boys, many of them dropped out after a certain level while the boys continued getting schooled.
