"The exodus of bright women into biochemistry...

left the schools in the hands of dull-witted and little-read women,
often of recent blue-collar origin, who, having had no experience of either education or cultivation, fell into psychobabble and ploughed the fields of self-esteem. Teachers who had not read the classics, and in many cases had never heard of them, could have no idea why these things might matter. Masculine influence having evaporated, they turned the schools into hothouses of niceness, anti-violence, hostility to boys, and cloying political correctness. The Sixties had triumphed. -- Fred On Everything
