A report in Work & Family Life (February 2005; suggests that the gender gap in education is widening:

“Among Americans in the 25 to 34 age cohort, 24% more women than men have earned an associate’s degree; 14% more women than men hold bachelor degrees; and 21% more women than men have advanced degrees. In all, more than 2 million men ages 25 to 34 could have earned a high school diploma, two-year, four-year, or graduate degree if they had chosen to stay in school as women did.”
