Unless blacks, women, etc. were entirely as prolific as white men but we just refuse to celebrate them, I don't think there's much of a current problem.

    Yeah, there's all sorts of problems with that line of thought process. White's are an established literate class, who use the term author as a social construct of power and domination.

    Well, this was the teacher training. When you're an actual teacher you can rip-off the internet for basic lesson plans to use as starting points, and after a year or two you've got a full set for the curriculum developed for yourself.

    I'm fine with exploring other cultural storytelling methods further. Still face it the novel is pretty much a European communication method.

    I'm not pulling out something like, "There's no problem, there's Virginia Wolfe and W.E.B. Dubois and... uh, lots of others!"

    I just mean that if, for instance, only 17% of the writing of any group was ever any good, the largest writing group will obviously dominate what's being taught now, and it was only a result of the prejudice back then that resulted in the difference we have now, not existing prejudice now.

    Granted, I'm aware it's still a little skewed currently, but all the skewing isn't all the current society's fault.

    Yeah, here we totally aren't expected to start having much differentiation in our lesson plans until we've already been teaching a year or two and feel comfortable in the classroom already and have some lesson plans from last year to start building more up on. Which is good because if I had to start doing shit like that before getting a feel for what type of lessons works for me as a teacher and which don't, I would rapidly lose my mind.

    Before I even finished typing that the technician answered. Turns out that even though I love British comedies I failed to realize that their seasons normally only last six seasons. I felt very silly.

    Then the technician and I talked about how great the show is. He even has the whole collection at home.

    I <3 Netflix.
