Gender gap and implicit bias

gender gap set to grow: "Students tend to benefit from having teachers who look like them... Over all, girls outperform boys... Yet the teacher work force is becoming more female: 77 percent of teachers in public and private elementary and high schools are women, up from 71 percent three decades ago"

implicit bias for all: "A new study, not yet published, found that math teachers favored boys over girls, and white students over black or Hispanic students — and that female teachers were biased in favor of boys and that nonwhite teachers were the most biased in favor of white students."
