Subject: Factors that affect girls in math

Trends still show that more men than women go on to higher mathematics. Girls achievement levels are equal in the elementary years, but at some point they turn off to mathematics. I'd like to survey teachers to find out what they think those factors are and how they can be addressed to encourage girls to pursue math at higher levels.
