Evaluate this

Interesting to see undertaking what seem to be genuine public consultations into draft curriculum in kindergarten - year 12 English, maths, science and history.

The television advertisement for the consultations has a bunch of kids on the bus dreaming of what they're going to be when they grow up including a couple of girls who want to "be a writer" and "help people" and boys who want to "invent things", "build bridges" and "save the world".

Here's my feedback/suggestion:

Get rid of the advertising agency who writes this sexist crap. What is this, the 1950s?
