As with other environments, the educational environment is subject to gender bias that limits the growth and development of girls and boys.
From an early age, social constructs about what constitutes the "right" traits and interests for girls and boys have an effect on them and become increasingly ingrained during the years they spend in the formal education system. It is common for both girls and boys to be exposed to overt or hidden messages about the gender roles they are expected to perform, messages that can hinder their growth and development.
