Teens from wildly different communities hang out at the Franklin Library teen center.

A new study has found that elementary school teachers tend to grade female students’ math and science work more harshly than male students’ work. When the name of the test-taker was hidden, and therefore the teacher didn’t know the student’s gender, girls tended to perform as well or better than boys on their math and science work. Helping teachers recognize this grading bias might help close the gap between the number of boys versus the number of girls who go into the STEM field.
