Women are increasingly outnumbering men in higher education, including doctural programs. Many fields which used to be called a "man's" job are seeing an increase in the number of women Jobs like psychiastrist, lawyer, and doctor just to name a few. But what does that have to do with men having less degrees and fathers. Well it seems that boys tend to emulate men and if less men are in a degreed field than boys are less likely to enter into that field. Let's face there are still industries where the "good ole boy" networking systems still holds true. Girls on the other hand see education as a way to earn more, be more and therefore whether their father's are  involved or a job is considered "a man's job" go for the degree, Well at least that's what some say, what do you say? Do father's impact boy's education? Are father's the reason less men are getting degrees? Tune in and join in the discussion
