High School teacher talked my daughter out of the major she thinks she wanted.
We and she are NOT UPSET. In fact we are glad she was told this now, but I'm wondering if you all think it was his or her place.
She was seriously wanting to take psychology. Her teacher told her that because she is a woman she should reconsider her choice of majors, because he or she ( I don't know if the teacher is a man or woman, but I think a man ) thinks that there are far too many women taking psychology, and very few men.... Come to think of it, I really think he is a guy.
He said that men would prefer and relate better to men, and there are not enough men taking psychology.
She ( my daughter ) said it wasn't about sexism, but rather a numbers / reality.
Think the teacher should have said something or kept that to himself?
