The social institution of education maintains inequalities through the demonstration of two of our assign readings. First, the reading Missing in Interaction by Myra and David Sadker is an essay that was based on how segregation exists in the classrooms and the impact it has on both boy and girls (Ore, 2011b; 305). Their main argument is that sexism occurs in the classroom without the teachers realizing it. Teachers tend to focus more on the boys than girls when a class discussion begins. There are two examples within this essay that demonstrates this. First example, Myra and David mention their observation of a fifth grade class where the teacher wanted each student to raise his or her hand in order to participate in the class discussion.
