Naturally.

Yeah, anecdotally, there was one male teacher in the K-5 building when I was in elementary school. Probably nearly half of my teachers, if not more were male once I was in 6 - 12.

This might actually be the most legit answer.

I don't know how it is in all states, but in Michigan (at least how I understand it), you can get certified for elementary or secondary education. Both overlap with middle school, but only elementary-certified can teach in elementary school and only secondary-certified can teach at high school.

It's entirely possible that more women are interested in the former and more men are interested in the latter. I have no data to actually back this up, though.

I think those certifications are most everywhere.

I didn't even realize this was a problem, but I'm sure it'll correct itself if it is, however something tells me there are less males that want to be teachers for that age group.

A wise person makes their own decisions; an ignorant one follows public opinion.

My first grade teacher was male, as was my 3rd grade teacher, and my fifth grade teacher.

None of them diddled me! *shock horror*

I did have a male band teacher in fifth grade that had me practice in the boys bathroom however..... O.o
