      Despite the fact that research has found no differences in intelligence between males and females, gender differences in the classroom remain even in the twenty-first century. The reasons for this phenomenon are unclear and may be attributable in part both to nature (heredity and constitutional factors) and to nurture (sociocultural and environmental factors). Scientists have proffered at least three potential reasons for the observed differences between genders in the classroom: the hidden curriculum, different expectations for performance and achievement for females and males, and the teacher expectancy effect. In truth, more than one factor may be operating at the same time. No matter the underlying causes for gender inequity in the classroom, however, it is important to give both males and females the education that they need, not only as a class but also as individuals within that class, in order to reach their full potential.
