Father is part of the old world thinking. Teachers are to be respected. Anything that tarnishes them brings dishonour to the student who wrote it and her family. Girls were also taught to be polite and subservient to the status-quo. Such a revolutionary speech makes him look like he lacks control over his daughters.
