The lefties won't be happy until the entire education system consists of studies in feminist poetry and nothing else.

PatrickMcIntyre to Bushy Eyebrow Partner (#2)

In all fairness, this research is based entirely on bias bodies who are undoubtedly going to get defensive...

“Schools, like post-Enlightenment society, choose to persist in believing that people who design, make and fix things must be less intelligent than those who can write essays, make speeches or understand quadratic equations,”

What is this based on? Who was sampled? How many? What were they asked? How was it measured? Besides from it being purely subjective, the article lacks any real substance.

It's basically, 'the Royal Academy has done research, and engineering traits are viewed as 'less intelligent' that essay-writing skills in pre-school/primary school children, so we need to do more' - it's nonsense if you ask me.
