Book Description:
Ever since the achievement of boys became an issue, the media have made much of the 'shortage' of male teachers. This book is essential reading for all primary education professionals, including teachers and students in colleges of education, classroom teachers, principals, and school boards.. It will provide them with an authoritative reference source on the 'problem with boys' and the 'feminizations of primary schooling'. Because it seen as caring rather than academic, primary teaching has been disparaged as low status women's work. Men teachers are encouraged at first but are then regarded as suspect because of the caring role. This book challenges much of the accepted wisdom about boys and men. Drawing on the authority of the boys' own voices, it redefines the profile of a good primary teacher as one which men and women, it seems, are equally capable of matching. The refreshing conclusion is that feminization is not to blame for the 'problem' with boys. The authors are both experienced teacher trainers at the University of the West of England. With contributions to the book by their female colleagues, they bring an insightful new vision to an area of research that has till now been dominated by women. This is a book for primary school teachers, parents, teacher educators and education policy makers.
