C.  Three explanations are, 1. school is often a harsh environment for boys, 2. there is a pervasive lack of male role models in schools, particularly at lower grade levels; 3. in the early years, schools tend to emphasize skills in which girls generally excel (e.g., fine-motor control, sedate behavior, and high levels of language/communication skills).
D.  According to these courts, a "true threat" is a threat that a reasonable person in the same circumstances would find to be a serious and unambiguous expression of intent to do harm based on the language and context of the threat.
E.  According to Bailey, assigning students to alternative education programs based on a student's likeness to a profile could be seen as a deprivation of the right to equal educational opportunities and thus could pose serious constitutional questions.
