8-Year-Old Gives BEST Response To Outdated Question On Her Homework!

When most parents go over their child’s school work, they are looking to make sure that their kid isn’t falling behind and to check up on the content. Yasmin’s dad was expecting a generic grammar lesson from his daughter’s elementary school homework…what he wasn’t expecting was an outdated and sexist question to be marked.

The worksheet, which hadn’t been updated since 1997, asked his daughter to fill in the “ur” syllable and know which words containing it should be used after a brief description. Yasmin’s answer had him proud…and a little concerned with the school’s lesson plans. When Yasmin was supposed to choose the word “nurse,” she instead chose the word “surgeon” which still contains the “ur” sound. The teacher “corrected” it to the answer the students should have chosen…but dad was confused.

Both he and his wife were surgeons. Naturally, his daughter would have associated “hospital lady” with her mother who was a surgeon at the hospital. He shared the homework, a little baffled, and wanted to know why the school was still promoting that sort of sexism so casually in the classroom. More people shared it and wanted to know why the school hadn’t updated their curriculum in 20 years.

Yikes.
