- Training for Early Childhood Teaching
By Sarah-Eve Farquhar (published in SET, EC Folio, 1999)
As a first step to exploring ways of supporting male teachers, reducing unfair biases and tensions in centres, and recruiting men into the teaching profession, information is needed about male teachers and their experiences. Key questions are: Who are these men? Why are they in teaching? What differences might they bring to teaching because they are male? And what is it like to be a teacher who is male?
The aim of this study was to gain some preliminary insights into what male teachers are like and what it is like to be a male teacher. Twenty men working with children in kindergartens and childcare centres participated in the study.
