The majority of children look up to their teachers...
And see them as a solid influence in their young lives.
So, if a teacher is seen doing anything...

Because at the end of the day...

But there are certain things role model shouldn't be doing...
And that's teaching girls to "dress in a feminine manner" to please men.
A school in Texas recently gave students a "chivalry" assignment.
In which girls were asked to "demonstrate to the school how the code of chivalry and standards set in the medieval concept of courtly love carries over into the modern day."
And as you may expect, the assignment has caused outrage online...
The assignment, which was first shared in a private Facebook group as per CBS News, was assigned to students at a high school in Texas.
In the assignment, girls are asked to "demonstrate to the school how the code of chivalry and standards set in the medieval concept of courtly love carries over into the modern day."
On the page is a set of rules that including "ladies must dress in a feminine manner to please the men," " walk behind men daintily as if their feet were bound," "not complain or whine," and "address all men respectfully by title, with a lowered head."
With a space at the side for an "adult witness signature" next to each rule.
The assignment also reads that "all ladies deemed worthy of the honor by the gentlemen" would get 10 points for every witness signature.
According to EverythingLubbock.com, a post in the private Facebook group revealed that there was also an assignment for boys, instructing them to "have manners towards the ladies and treat them politely in some situations."
In a statement to CBS News, the public relations director for Shallowater High School said: "This assignment has been reviewed, and despite its historical context, it does not reflect our district and community values."
"The matter has been addressed with the teacher, and the assignment was removed."
It is believed to have received a number of complaints from parents.
Here’s a really ... interesting ... assignment on chivalry from @shallowaterisd. They are requiring the female students to lower their heads and curtsy for men; clean up after men; cook for and bring a drink to the men’s class. This goes on for the entire day ... even at home. pic.twitter.com/i81Zr2iAva— Brandi D. Addison Davis 🗞 (@BrandiDAddison) March 3, 2021
