Pull Larua’s String

From Holden:

Just like Teen Talk Barbie before her, Laura Bush proclaims that women just can’t handle math.

‘Well, I taught 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade, so I taught really every subject, but reading was my favorite . . . I was not a very good math teacher and I think that’s kind of a problem in elementary schools. A lot of — especially women teachers — are great in language arts and not so great in math.’

“En route to Washington, Bush clarified her remark. ‘That is a stereotype,’ she said, ‘but I think that actually is also proven.’
