This Texas Elementary School Sent Home a Very Sexist Curriculum

A Texas elementary school sent home a very sexist newsletter with the curriculum for fourth and fifth grade students. Not only were male and female students separate, but also their lessons were not equal. While male students studied college and career exploration, the female students would have “girl talk” and discuss confidence issues and friendships.

The parents were clearly not happy, so Borchardt Elementary School tried explaining that it wasn’t their intention to make the curriculum sexist or unequal and that both genders would eventually discuss the same topics.

What do you think, collegiettes? Was it an honest mistake?
