Think that is a given when you've just had a little one. From experience, brain tends to go to mush for a while!

Re: Your thoughts on this please.

The course I'm doing is probably pretty similar to the one you did Emma. (Did you find some of the questions as daft as I did, lol)

The question I asked here has no bearing on what I submit to the course. It is just that i was shocked by the comment in one section about teachers, as It was beyond my memory.

Who's running this course?

The way a lot of it is worded is a load of old codswallop.

The part I quoted could be construed as prejudiced, for it makes no mention of class, and only relates to women of the lower middle classes and above.

For at least two hundred years, since the start of industrialisation, poorer women have worked for a living, and married.

It sounds like a BBC public information broadcast from the 1950's.

It's Vision 2 learn Rindy. Doing it online

Some of the questions asked so far have been pathetic, in my opinion.

But if it gives me another qualification to my name, for those that know no better, who cares?

It's probably very interesting, but the way it's worded sounds very vague and fuzzy.

As you say, why didn't it say when it was that female teachers had to be unmarried, and totally ignored the fact that at the same hundreds of thousands of women, further down the class system, were working hard to feed their families.

I left Accrington High School in 1953 and Mrs Kennedy was still teaching English Language and Latin - and a right tyrant she was!

The marriage bar for female teachers formally ended in 1946, after the introduction of the Education Act (1944).

Well done, Garinda.

I tried to look for when it ended but couldn't find it.
