    fared?

    "Historically, girls fared worse than boys when it came to schooling."

    Is "fared" the past tense for "fare"? What does it mean in this context?

    Re: fared?

    In other words, girls didn't do as well as academically as did boys.

    fare–verb (used without object)

    7. to experience good or bad fortune, treatment, etc.; get on: He fared well in his profession.

    Re: fared?

    I'm still confused. Is it saying that girls didn't do as well as boys in terms of examination performance or they had worse chances to be educated when compared to boys?
