Schoolchildren are more likely to disrupt lessons if they have a male teacher, a survey suggests.
Although the survey found a general improvement in pupil behaviour since 2001, 77% of males said they had a lesson disrupted at least once a week., versus 66% of women. 69% of men and 57% of women said they had been sworn at by pupils.

A man's aggression is written all over his face
"The study looked at three groups of men taken from either the general population, from university hockey teams or from national hockey teams. In all three groups, the researchers found a statistically significant correlation between facial shapes and aggressive tendencies...The differences in facial characteristics between the sexes came about at the onset of puberty as a result of the surge in sex hormones, particularly testosterone in boys."
