    As values for the children, I agree. At the very least, this topic belongs in history/social studies.

There is nothing you can do to change that short of homeschooling a kid, and I have seen the consequences of that action working at Walmart.
    Only dorks take social cues from their teachers. You must have been a big-time dork.

    Gender roles are best learned from experience in society. What your parents learned will probably be, uh, inoperative when your kids are grown up.

    Gender roles don't change from one generation to the next. When you get a flat tire in the pouring rain dad fixes it not mom.

    Dude, you are human. You most certainly, absolutely, positively learned social and cultural behaviors from teachers. If you ever said the pledge of allegiance, were told to share, were talked to about treating others with respect, etc. you were taught such behaviors. When you interacted with boys and girls, you refined your understanding of gender roles. The way that teachers talked to you and treated you also probably reinforced your understanding of gender roles. That is how ALL people learn.

    No, it's true. When it is not part of the lesson plan, but related to it, or perhaps from an off-the-cuff remark, you'll get a chunk of ideas from an instructor, gender included. They do influence, however slightly.

    On a slightly unrelated note, I actually took social cues from my instructor. It was a sociology course. You know all of those unwritten rules that most people get and abide by, but never say them? Well, glimpses of those showed up in that course, taken for granted, before going on to the course content itself. I actually learned a lot about the rules you people follow on a regular basis as a result.

    Sorry to go off topic, but this is a pet hate of mine. My parents used to tell me I could be anything I want when I grow up. I still remember the day I worked out that roughly half the people in my class wanted to be astronauts, and that if we all got to be astronauts there wouldn't be enough people left to build the spaceship.

    I think one of the reasons people are so miserable nowadays is because they have unrealistic expectations of how their lives are going to turn out. I'm not advocating telling 8 year olds that they should never bother trying to be an astronaut, ambition is great, but teaching kids that they can be whatever they want when they grow up is just lying to them and setting them up for disappointment.

    I fully agree that girls and boys should be taught the same thing in terms of what their options are, but I don't support lying to people.
    If you hate capitalism so much, then just write everything in lower case. Problem solved.

    ... or Mom knows how to use a jack and can change the tire. It's not like there's some secret knowledge for men.

    So whose fault is it when a girl gets knocked up in high school - teacher or parents?
