Teaching: A Women-Only Profession? A 1997 NZ Annual Review of Education journal article

Article published in the NZ Annual Review of Education, 1997, pp. 169 -180.

The statistics on teacher gender show a continuing downward trend in the participation of male teachers across secondary, primary and early childhood education. This paper identifies key reasons for the feminisation of teaching.

The main advantages of having male teachers are presented.  Having male and female teachers seems to matter most for children's learning during the early years of their education. It is argued in the paper that the growing gender gap between male and female participation in teaching should be regarded as a serious problem by both the profession and by government.
