Bias in the Classroom
Boys are the center of attention and most likely to be called on to maintain their attention and maintain discipline.
Girls are the quiet spectators. They are typically well-behaved and ignored.
Bias in Books
More men as heroes, inventors, etc. are mentioned in text books.
Not many books about women in school libraries.
Many teacher were not taught about women's experiences so they do not know how to neutralize omissions or stereotypes in textbooks.
Costs of Entitlement
Teacher interactions can accentuate gender differences.
Teachers talk less to girls, question them less, praise, probe, clarify, and correct them less.
Boys must be managed in order for the class to be managed.
Boys are given more public attention and active instruction.
Cost of Sexism
Boys & Schools: poor school achievement, over diagnosis & referral to Special Eduction, discipline problems. (Boys' Crisis)
Girls & Schools: 2006 over 1/3 students in grades 3rd-12th stated that people think "the most important thing for girls is to get married and have children."
Test Scores: Girls are ahead or equal until high school/college.

Boys stay away from girls or else appear like one.
