Why is U.S. education so pro-female/anti-male?

Examples:

For decades the women's educational equity act actively encouraged K-12 schools to cater to girls. Far fewer boys go onto college.

Under Title IX, when males participate in sports more, they are cut, but wellness activities monopolized by females see no such cuts.

Entire courses, minors and majors dedicated to feminist propaganda and recruitment.

Workshops, sensitivity training, etc. all geared toward violence and negative actions towards women, despite the fact males are victims of violence more so than women.

While some college are beginning to give males a slight advantage in admissions, scholarships are still astronomically in women's favor.

Proposed quotas on men in male dominated courses (STEMs) but no such proposal to limit women in more numerous female-dominted courses.

Forcing colleges to handle cases of sexual assault, denying accused males proper due process.

How did U.S. education become so incredibly one-sided?

    "Why is U.S. education so pro-female/anti-male?"

    This is a broad topic, so I'll just take education, for example, as it pertains to your point in STEM areas.

    According to U.S. Census Bureau statistics, women in fields commonly referred to as STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) made up 7 percent of that workforce in 1970, a figure that had jumped to 23 percent by 1990. But the rise essentially stopped there. Two decades later, in 2011, women made up 26 percent of the science workforce.

    Social scientists, along with the Feminist colleagues, have offered to explain this, by the way of offering a solution to this plateau.

    Some of them believe that many cultural forces continue to stand in the way—ranging from girls being steered toward other professions from an early age and gender bias and sexual harassment in the workplace to the potentially career-stalling effects on women of having children. [1]

    Stanford science historian Londa Schiebinger calls a "gendered innovation," which will make science more relevant to women.

    This is a concerted "push" to get more women into STEM fields, which has found favor with government forces which see the women demographic as a strong vote-bank.

    The Title IX issue you point out is another blaring example of policy-making gone awry. The basic idea was, and is, "if women cannot, or will not do it, then prevent men from doing it." This has led to fund-cuts for interested men in sports, because they now have no recourse to developing their skills/talents without having to worry about their financial issues.

    Regarding your point about colleges being given the power to adjudicate "sexual harassment" concerns in colleges: It's been an oft-repeated concern from people who want an equal society, that dealing with such cases/issues needs tools, processes, and know-how that only courts, law-enforcement, and forensic labs are equipped with. Colleges are places for education --- not for deciding who's the victim or who's the perp.

    There's an unfortunate trend in all these issues: Men, as a class, are either seen as forces that prevent women from attaining their goal--or we wouldn't see such nonchalance in treating one gender as second-class citizens.

    This is why many people believe that education in the US has become increasingly pro-female/anto-male, in funding priorities, and gender-based issue-handling.

    Because the only acceptable behavior these days is female behavior 20% of American boys are doped up on Ritalin or other drugs ( the long term affects of which are unknown ) because normal boisterous behavior is no longer tolerated from boys.

    Ironically it is females who will be hurt the most by this,imagine a world where 20% of the male population have been brain damaged as children if you don't think its safe to walk the streets now just give it another 10 years there is gonna be hell to pay for this.

    It isn't. Some times it seems that way due to years

    when there's more females born than males.

    When there's more males than females....then it will

    be the opposite.

    It's a backlash against all the pro-male prejudice that existed until the mid 1960s. I hope somewhere along the line we will quit overcompensating and strike a decent middle ground.

    It's all about affirmative action! Females and blacks obviously can't succeed in life without affirmative action because they're all a bunch of losers and everybody feels sorry for them! How very pathetic they are.

    Because feminism a female superemacy movement is only concerned with the well being of females at the expense of the males. When do you see feminists fighting for the issues that men have? If feminism was a true gender equality movement then they would concern themselves with both genders *equally*.
