More on biased curriculum

That's just it...all we were humbly asking the teacher, in view of what his
curriculum plans are and accompanying textbook is, was to allow for our
daughter to do some research on the subjects presented from the contributions of
women and perhaps Blacks, Hispanics and Native Americans. He said no. The
director of curriculum told me that as far as she felt ''our daughter should be
graded upon the material presentation..''and at that time i felt too timid
(believe it or not) to even ask for that..but she brought it up herself to my

Of course we would like a whole NEW curriculum! but no, all we want
is a ''modification'' of this sexist course to accommodate our child and
hopefully bring ''home the point'' to benefit all other students.
