Teaching – A Women Only Profession.

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.

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.
