Abstract

Gender disparities in academic performance may be driven in part by the interaction of teacher and
student gender, but systematic sorting of students into classrooms makes it difficult to identify causal
effects. We use the random assignment of students to Korean middle school classrooms and show
that the female students perform substantially better on standardized tests when assigned to female
teachers; there is little effect on male students.
