Kendall College and gender roles in education

I got this in the mail today.

I get a lot of educational direct mail. I dunno if it's me or the fact that Chicago has so many schools. Either way, I usually just toss the mailers in the recycling box. But the kiddie drawing caught my eye. Congrats marketing artist! Then I did a double take...WTF?

Yup, Kendall College, an institution of higher education was trying to convince me to give them $250 a credit by using gender stereotypes. Um, yeah. Not so much.

Okay, maybe it's too much to expect for the girl to be a Supreme Court justice, but they couldn't have made just a TINY bit of effort and made the girls QUEENS?? Barf.
