More times than not, individuals belonging to these marginalized groups are also denied access to the schools. The results showed a significant difference in attitudes towards mathematics between boys and girls.

This agrees with most of the previous research in the subject area. Most of the studies reported that girls lack confidence in mathematics compared to boys. The girls tended to view math as a male domain and were anxious about mathematics as well. Exposure to lead produces a variety of adverse health effects in sensitive populations through its impact on different organs and systems.

The nature of the effects is a complex function of such factors as the magnitude of exposure, the physiologic and behavioral characteristics of the exposed person, and the relative importance of the lead-injured organ or system to overall health and well-being.
