A private school teacher has complained about how "today's girls aren't going on nature walks or learning poetry off by heart - they're cramming their heads full of facts".
Blanche Girouard, who teaches religious education at the £20,000 a year St Paul's Girls' School, also suggested girls were happier when they were simply expected to marry rather than go to university.
Writing for The Oldie magazine, Ms Girouard praised an era when "everything seemed to be geared towards marriage" and "parents really didn't seem to care" about educating girls.
Although she later acknowledges "it seems heinous that parents had such limited ambition for their bright daughters," she adds: "And yet there are aspects of that era that are enviable."
Gee is anybody else surprised that this comes from somebody who teaches "religious education?"
As you can imagine this did not exactly go over well with the parents with students in this school. It's always a little troubling when the person you pay to educate your child, instead slams the necessity for said education.
I kind of wonder if this Blanche woman is not simply expressing her frustration that getting an education interfered with her ability to land a man?
Either way that teacher REALLY needs to be fired.
