I just applied for a job at an all-girls’ high school which seeks to “empower women” by offering three levels of fashion courses, but no physics or calculus. In addition, I am starting to see a strong correlation between history teaching and sports coaching/PE teaching. Whereas I previously assumed this was just a quirk of my high school, it seems that, actually, it is a national phenomenon and that I can look forward to hobnobbing with gym teachers for the rest of my life.
Last week, a history teacher and football coach competed on “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?” He wasn’t. Not even close.
