Shane’s Take — Of Boys and Men
Whether you’re trying to improve education and employment outcomes or know men in your life, you probably already know that boys and men are struggling. Reeves not only lays out the case for why, but also offers specific advice on what policy changes can make a difference. I also appreciated that chapters were addressing how the right and the left are contributing to these issues. By addressing partisan talking points, I think Reeves does a good job of diffusing arguments before they begin so that we can focus on the root causes and solutions. Unfortunately, many of the solutions involve difficult policy changes that are likely beyond our local control. But the book does provide a good bold goal and roadmap for what it might take.
