Today, I asked students to identify a woman that made a difference in history. I got several people answering Martin Luther King Jr. These are 9th graders. FML

Would Coretta Scott King have been an okay answer? As the saying goes. "Behind every successful man is a great woman".

I didn't know MLKJ was transgender.

I've been here twice and I'm still trying to figure out what the hell you mean.

Rosa Parks and I'm not even American !

I didn't know MLKJ was transgender.

It was the biggest plot twist

I'm a fan of quoting Rosa Parks: "No".

The hell are you going on about?

We still libraries. They haven't gone anywhere.

I'm sorry, but what do you expect? Schools teach nothing about African Americans in history. this is despite the fact that there were blacks on Edison's team when he was inventing the light bulb and other things. there were blacks at Bells team when he was inventing the telephone. there are loads of pattents attributed to black scientists going back a 150 years (besides George Washington Carver)

He never said it had to be a black woman though.

true, I was asuming it was a black history month thing, which is why the students responded with MLK. Schools don't teach anything about women in history either.

As a ninth grader I would like to confirm that we aren't all this incompetent.
