You bring this upon yourself by defining 'girly' as a trait that may be seen as negative. You cannot do something 'like a girl' or 'like a boy'. Everyone is different.

So someone decided to bump a 5 year old thread in order to express an opinion that pretty much everyone agrees with anyway.  :|

We also have to remember that (especially with the British system) teachers are made to follow the curriculum strictly, with little room for variation. Teachers aren't allowed to teach how they want to teach, they're told what to do. This limits their ability to show passion for the subject and really engage the students, which then has a negative effect on our knowledge and understanding. At times it can feel like we're ticking boxes off a checklist instead of learning about the subject. I've noticed this significantly in my final years of school. The fault definitely lies with the department of education within the government. The 'top dogs' who determine what the youth should learn nationally, despite almost all of them having no experience in teaching themselves. Not to mention that they're from privileged background, giving them a completely different upbringing to the majority of kids. How has it come to be that they're the ones that know what's best for us? I have huge respect for teachers that continue to do their jobs passionately, despite this joke of a system that has been placed upon them.
