By adding the coffee emote it becomes obviously sarcastic.

I don't think I've ever seen or heard of one. My first male teacher was in 7th grade, and it was a culture shock to me because of the vast difference from what I was used to.

I honestly think young children could benefit from male teachers. If anything, they can be a positive male role model for those that don't have fathers.

Why isn't this subject ever talked about? Why aren't there sex-equality groups out there trying to raise the percentages of elementary male teachers?

Actually, this is a very real and often spoken of topic in public education in the US. Men are needed in all grade levels to serve as role models; no one doubts this.

The gender inequality in public education is choice. Most men do not choose public education because it is considered a women's calling/work--requires caregiving.

It is also one of the most least valued career choices that requires a BA/MA--pays poor.

I have just spent 5 years in America's 6th largest school district. Who are the top choices for new teachers? Men, not women because of the under representation of men in the field. Yet still, the men are grossly under represented.

Why? Their choice.

As grade levels rise the more increase in male teachers. You will find just as many women interested in teaching kinder as any other grade. Not so with the men; they tend to care not for the menial task of wiping a nose, so to speak.

Fact: the men wanting to teach in public school get, quicker than the speed of light, hired.

We are under a history of gendered related jobs. And, the truth is, and still is, most men shy away from doing what is considered women's work.

Men are becoming more interested in nursing, but still considered a woman's calling--caregiving.

My first male teacher was 2nd grade. He was a total Ben Stien, and he told us that dinosaurs died from smoking too many cigars. His name was Mr. Hickman. I don't know why I remember him so clearly. Maybe because he was also the 5th grade science teacher when I reached 5th grade.

For whatever irrational reason, parents don't seem to like male teachers instructing their kids in the younger stages... With the exception of sports teachers and coaches...

Though I can understand if a teacher chooses to not go into the younger classes. I know I would try to avoid it.

You are most likely right. I know of only one male teacher in Pre-K. The kids and the parents just loved him though. My brother-in-law taught physically challenged elementary children. The work gave him great satisfaction.

I clearly remember a black male fifth grade elementary school teacher.
