An interesting study was conducted by scientists from the University of North Carolina. 43 students they were divided into three groups and suggested distance learning, in which the contact with the teacher was limited to correspondence. Two groups were taught by teachers-women, two men, writes the Hindustan Times.
In one group, the teacher-a man was represented by a female name, the other Vice versa. After the end of the training cycle, scientists were asked to evaluate the learning process and personal qualities of teachers.
Women teachers were evaluated worse than men, students considered them less competent. Scientists believe it is because of the stereotypes that must be fought. The results of the study, students received the same level of knowledge, which had nothing to do with the gender of teachers.
