Middle school students have some idea about their future jobs. The most striking contrast is in teaching: 30 percent of girls would like to become teachers while only 5 percent of boys want to do this job. 20 percent of boys want to do business and another 20 percent want to become lawyers while girls take up 15 percent in these two fields.
What boys like to do most is to become managers (30%) and the second largest group would like to be scientists (25%). Besides teaching, the second choice for girls is to be scientists (20%) and managers (20%).The number is not small. Girls also expect to show their ability in these two fields.
