So angry with the misinformation spread by my daughters school

My 8 year old daughter comes home yesterday and tells me that her teacher said that everyone must drink a glass of cow milk every day or they won’t get enough protein and calcium. When my daughter asked her about plant milks the teacher got angry and said that unless it comes from an animal, she should not be calling those milk and that they have too much “girl hormones” in them. I can only assume she is making an attempt to refer to the myth regarding oestrogen in soy.

How can the very people tasked with broadening our children’s minds be so narrow minded and ignorant?

It pains me that I had to tell an 8 year old that teachers are human and don’t actually know everything and she should fact check and learn to develop her own opinion from following research and science and not always believe moron teachers.

Makes me angry.
