BALTIMORE, Md. (WBFF) -- Educators from around the world gathered in Baltimore this week. For the first time, the International Boys' Schools Coalition held its annual conference in Charm City.

Educators at this conference embrace how boys learn differently than girls. And it doesn't matter what state, country, or continent they are from. They all deserve unique attention.

Annual Conference Video

The IBSC Annual Conference was hosted by Boys' Latin during the week of June 25. Here, 600 educators from 120 schools in 20 countries from five continents shared ideas and strategies on how to engage and reach young boys – who are naturally competitive, tend to want more structure than girls and need guidance as they become men.

"For educators, for those of us who work in boys school and advocate for boys, it's enormous. It's kind of like our Super Bowl," stated Chris Post, the Headmaster of Boy's Latin School of Maryland.
