The relation of women to culture has historically been different from that of men. Schools and Universities have been until very recently a male preserve, which has effectively excluded all but a handful of upper-class women from the resources of the official culture. Many educationalists as late as the nineteenth century believed that a woman needed to be literate enough to read her Bible, but could not aspire to the arrogance of authorship.
But when the moment we realize the performances that express our true selves do not align with the socially constructed gender category, we are being seen as weirdos and identified as “wrong” because the society do not understand why this happens. We are ever since educated that we only have binary sexes – male or female, in schools. Traditions and cultures also suggest perceptions and conventions that creates the “correct” type of male and female. While the majority have their biological sex and gender identity aligned consistently, some just find theirs do not fit perfectly. Schools and the society were not able to explain this phenomenon and thus people related and mixed it to disorders and mental illness, tried to control it and to ‘fix’
Single gender schools benefit education in both girls and boys. There has been a controversy between whether or not both genders should be in the same classroom and if single-sex institutions are beneficial.

Co-educational classrooms are found to have flaws, both genders distract the other from achieving their education. The scientific fact that boys and girls develop at different times and speeds and in some cases, teachers can favor their own gender.
11. Cultural Bias and Rigid Gender Roles Cultural Bias is frequently encountered by girls with disabilities in accessing education. Male children are given preferential treatment and allocation of resources and opportunities to male children at the expense of their sisters.

There is a lack of representation of Southeast Asian culture and history in curriculums. If teachers and peers were exposed to this knowledge, then they would be understanding and have a positive mindset towards the students due to their new contextual knowledge. It would also make the students feel more connected to what they are learning. It gives them a purpose to become more educated not only for themselves, but also for their greater community. There is also a lack of Southeast Asian educators for students to look up to as role models.
It has been proven that group counseling makes it possible for school counselors to meet the needs of every student. However, groups counseling between children and adolescents is very different from group counseling with adults.

She then realizes that she doesn’t really know how to communicate or interact with them. That is one reason single sex schools cause problems.

During the apartheid system learners were segregated on the basis of race or ethnicity and it was further extended to the basis of disability. Schools were organized in a way that it caters for a particular race and disability.

But in practical situation they may be deprived of it. The teacher may have the concept that there is no any use of teaching English language to such children. Even if such children are kept in inclusive school they feel marginalized. Marginalized in the sense that both, hearing and hearing impaired, children are being taught the same mainstream curriculum.
