My sons’ primary school teacher is retiring right around now. She’s been teaching for more years than she can remember and she has certainly earned her teaching stripes. It’s time to pass the baton on to a new teacher.
My eight year old told me he hopes her replacement is a male teacher. He is in group five and is yet to have a male teacher.
Role models for boys in the classroom are so important. So very important.
Read My Son Would Like a Male Teacher for His Class over on The Good Men Project to read why attracting males to the teaching profession is so difficult, and why it matters.
Over to You: Does your child have male teachers? Do you think it matters either way? What do governments need to do to attract males back into the profession?
