Male quiz master may enhance performance of girls’ schools
“Girls’ schools might perform better with a male quizmaster. Male schools seem to be more comfortable with female quiz masters. Girls naturally feel more comfortable with their fathers, and men with their mothers. This observation is also visible in quiz settings. The constant gender bias by quiz moderators perhaps results in the girls’ poor performance.”
