False incentive

Schools and education is a job sector where, in general, it is easier to apply for and be allowed flexible working for child care.

I see how this benefits families with children.

In order for this to be a positive thing that specifically benefits women, we would have had to secretly decide that, in an either/or choice between career and raising children, raising children should always fall to women, and building a career should always fall to men.

Under the circumstances, I have to call the policy irrelevant to bringing equality to the workplace.
