Forget Gender: Whether a Teacher is Male or Female Doesn't Matter

Teacher: The National Education Magazine
Issue Dec 2005 (Dec 2005)

Abstract: Like is good for like, right? Boys need male teachers. Girls need female teachers. But is this really the case? Bruce Carrington, Peter Tymms and Christine Merrell checked out the gender role-model hypothesis by looking at the interaction effects between the gender of the teacher and the gender of the student - and found that gender made little difference.
