Research conducted by the Centre for Economic Performance at the London School of Economics and elsewhere found that female teachers tend to mark down male students.[1][2] The research went on to show that male students recognise this and tend to put less effort in for female teachers, recognising that they will be subject to discrimination. In contrast female students tend to put in more effort for male teachers despite male teachers marking students fairly regardless of the gender of the student.[3][4]

Research carried out at MIT also confirmed that female teachers tend to mark boys down but male teachers tend to mark fairly across genders.[5][6]

Follow up research by the OECD confirmed these results across 60 countries.[7][8]

Some researchers claim that this is a result of boys being more disruptive in class and female teachers tending to academically mark down students as a result of disruptive behaviour.[9][10]

In 2024 some female teachers complained that following Andrew Tate was causing some boys to engage in misogynistic behaviour.[11]
