Girls’ better grades than boys ‘may be down to teacher bias’

Our thanks to Jim for a piece in the Telegraph confirming yet again what’s been known by researchers for decades.

As William Collins outlines in The Empathy Gap – the paperback costs £25.00 on Amazon, the ebook just £4.32 – the education gender gap started in the 1987/8 academic year with the replacement of O levels by GCSEs, which enabled teachers’ pro-girl bias to be reflected in grades and in turn inevitably increased the proportion of women on university courses. It was accompanied by yet further feminisation of the teaching profession and grade inflation to hide poor teaching and the dumbing down of curricula.
