Your Examination Standards Are Fifty Years Out Of Date

, , , | Learning | December 20, 2017

(A friend of mine is doing her state exam at the end of her teacher training. The grade determines if you are offered a job afterwards.)

Examiner #1: “Your performance was very good.”

Examiner #2: “Yes, I agree. Your grade is [well below average].”

Friend: *quite shocked* “Could you tell me why you are giving me such a bad grade if my performance was very good?”

Examiner #1: “Well, we can see from your file that you are married, so you don’t really need to work. We reserve the good grades for single women who need a job more than you do.”
