That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t strive to do better. Even if one group will always benefit more from the school system, we still have to constantly evaluate its performance and explore ways to close the gap and boost the underperforming demographics. This is the only way to improve the education system and reduce wider inequalities in our society.
It also isn’t true that a system always has to favour one demographic. An education system where girls are given more collaborative projects to complete with their peers, while boys do more individual exercises and tests. Setting each gender up for academic success through the teaching and assessment methods is achievable.
We do not have to resign ourselves to having an education system that lifts one demographic while simultaneously hindering another.
