What are you basing this on? Have you kept records of all female and male teachers?
Why not stand by the staffroom door and ask them or hand out questionnaires?

If they do it's more likely that they've a sick child to take care of and no one to watch them.

Er... we call that primary school here. The teachers become predominantly more male as you proceed to the higher levels.

:lol:

Completely agree with this!

I actually didn't have a single male teacher in either nursery or primary school and literally had like a handful of male teachers in high school among 30+ female teachers. :rambo:

Really? I feel like this might be more of a case at university? At high school/sixth form, I only had female teachers (apart from a handful of male ones). The same could also be said for a few neighbouring high schools (which I went to for a subject or two in my final years at school).

It could also depend on the area? I feel like quite a lot of private schools in Edinburgh have more male teachers but I'm not 100% certain.

Sorry to hear that... we all respected you and your right to free speech. Seamus is a man's name btw, Irish for James.

So a bunch of women are now expected to handle the chaos of 11-18 yr olds? I think I have just discovered the cause of our social malaise. I work at youth clubs in a deprived area... put that knife away or I might cry does not really work.
