Way before public schools, father’s taught boys after age seven about the “real” world. They took them away from the love and comfort of Mom and brought them to work in the family trade.  Society has changed and though someone must closely care and guard a child from birth until at least 12, the lines are blurred as to whom and how.

Many male educators are also fathers and providers. I wonder if schools provide their students more supplies than their female counterparts? Do they ask for them? Or is it like asking for directions? I imagine they also reach into their household pocket to cover some incidentals, though maybe sleeves as handkerchiefs and dirty hands

don’t bother them as much. Or at least, if we stereotype men, that would be the case. But I know differently. So why don’t public schools provide the basics found in any office or workplace? Because teachers accept the notion of it being their responsibility.  In any case, school’s out for now, but we’ll revisit this topic in a month as the school year nears (early August in our neck of the woods).

But do go ahead and celebrate Father’s Day this year with the tried and true as well as a couple of ideas on the wild side! Check out our featured lists or keep on scrolling (we do get a small commission if you buy from some of those links):
