Does this confuse anyone else? Teachers are supposed to protect their students’ privacy by not sharing their personal information. A teacher can’t post grades publicly or leave a gradebook open on a desk because students might see each other’s grades. Yet, we have no problem with forcing students to get undressed in front of each other in gym class.
We don’t want any of our kids to know what any of the other kids got on their math test because that might make someone feel bad. But, we’re ok with them knowing what color underwear everyone else wears. We see nothing wrong with making sure our children all know who has the biggest breasts or the smallest penis.
Why do our children have a right to privacy except when it comes to their own bodies? Why are we still forcing them to undress in front of each other during one class period while forcing them to cover up their grades in the next?
If this makes sense to you, could you please explain it to me? Because I just don’t get it.
