The Sadker’s open their “Hidden Lessons” work by stating that “it is difficult to detect sexism unless you know precisely how to observe it” (Sadker, and Sadker 55). It is clear that the authors feel that sexism and biasing are current issues and happening but being left unattended by school administrators across the country.

They formed their conclusions after sampling classroom activities in a leading Washington D.C. private school and used a statistical system as a model to hypothesize outcomes in other areas of the country. In addition to the Sadker’s sampling evidence and their conclusions; they also expose asymmetric teacher-pupil interaction instances where teachers use female students as props while the boys are allowed to dominate the lecture discussion.

He gives statistics that show how bad the American education system is. For example, Barber states that simple literacy is not efficient in over ninety-million adult Americans. Many children either become drop-outs or become criminals, and those who choose to stay in school are falling behind the world standard in science education. Children don’t listen to their school teachers as much as they listen to society.
