(ANSA) - Rome, October 3 - Girls are outperforming boys in
their studies at school, Italy's statistical agency Istat said
Wednesday.
In a report dedicated to school and education, Istat says
that the 38.3% of female students surveyed were studying more
than is required, compared to just under 25% of boys.
In middle school, 35.4% of boys between 13 and 17 years
were judged to have a sufficient school performance, 27.5% were
good and 19.7% were judged to be distinguished.
The survey was conducted between 2008 and 2011.
Many more boys, particularly in secondary schools, must
take extra classes to keep up - 32.7% compared with 26.3% of
female students.
In other data, the report noted that the number of foreign
students in Italian classrooms rose between 2008 and 2011 to
59.3% from 54.8%.
More foreign students were found in Italy's central and
northern regions - more than 78% - while the remainder were in
the south and on Italy's islands.
