You may be wondering why the title of this post is TEXAS. In a previous Grade 10 advisory, the grade 10s including myself were given a PDF worksheet to fill out that seems to be very biased towards thinking all its users are in TEXAS.
Here is an unedited copy of the worksheet and I have no clue if this is allowed under copyright law
On page 2, the worksheet advises the reader to go to wrksolutions.com. I went to this page and observed this:
wrksolutions.com clearly is catering to the Houston-Galveston area.
Following is a map showing the distance between our school and the Houston-Galveston area:

You may notice that potential places for the reader to work seem to focus more on a certain geographical area, that being Houston in Texas in the United States of America.
Page 6 is encouraging the reader to go to www.texasrealitycheck.com. After going to this webpage, I can see it is made by the Texas Workforce Commission, which I suspect may be catering to the Texas community.
The example résumé on Page 8 has Jane Doe living in Houston, Texas.
I would like the fine people of our school to consider that this worksheet may be catered towards the Houston, Texas community, and not the community of our school.
