Sexism in education

I think that this is an interesting article found on the BBC education website which touches on the issue of how British society has focused on behavior bordering on discrimination when looking at males in education.

I've experienced a lot of that from subtle suggestions that I probably should not work with young children (by administrators) to overt suggestions that I need to keep the door to my office open when I administer routine assessments of intelligence and achievement to female students.
