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

Wow! Having to read from books didnt just give you the magical ability to marginalize every single school child, but it also made you vastly more successful than anyone younger than you right? Seriously dude, get over yourself

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)

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.
