I am in my last year of nursing school and after spending what seems like an eternity there, I do feel that the males in my class have had a hard time. There are three of us in a class of 33 students.
I didn't notice any certain treatment first quarter. I did notice it in third quarter and according the other guys, they have felt it too. I can't say with unequivocal certainty that we are treated unfairly because there are a variety of factors to consider.
One is that other female students are picked on too. In fact, the general consensus is that each quarter, a teacher picks two or three students to give a hard time. Secondly, we as males may have walked into the class being vigilant and on the lookout for unjust behavior, which makes us hardly objective.
Any other thoughts?
