6 Ways America’s White Female Teaching Force Harms Black Boys

There are about 3.2 million public school teachers in America, and more than 80 percent of them are white females. With an overwhelmingly white female teaching force across the country, many Black boys encounter instructors who are not entirely comfortable with their presence. This has a severe impact on their academic fortunes.

Female Teachers Give Boys Lower Grades

Studies have found that when female teachers evaluate students without reference to objective test scores, the teachers grade boys well below their actual academic performance. Professor Christopher Cornwell at the University of Georgia found that when boys perform better than girls on tests, after the subjective evaluations by female teachers were factored in, the girls wound up with higher grades. This disparity was even more striking for Black and Hispanic boys.
