What is best for kids is a question best answered with the objective that their parents have in mind for them. Right now there is a choice between somebody who is good at academics and someone who knows how to be in the company of the opposite sex.

There are not merely gender differences in learning, there is a variety of other factors such as parenting styles, and the environment at home among other things that account for these differences.
