Biology Trumps Teacher

Mary's life long dream waste be a forward for the New York Knicks. She joined every basketball team she could find and played the sport daily in her high school gym class.

Poor Mary, all 4'11" of her never made the team. Her sex and her height made this dream impossible to fulfill.

If only Mary's physical education teachers had reflected on what they had done and worked on how things could have been different.   Mary could have been a success. But, Mary's teachers were no better than the math teachers at Packemin. They were just not effective.
